    Well I finally got some pics up of my truck working. I am a chemist by profession but I worked at home depot all through college and still work there now a little bit since they were good to me. Yesterday I ended up helping out at work by plowing inside the garden gates. It was me and the store tool rentals mini excavator. I didn't get paid except for my normal pay, but they did fill up my gas tank a little, so it's okay will me. Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure!

    I can't wait to paint it and get a new cutting edge, but it will last the rest of the season :)

    Also, I am not a complete idiot, I signed a full release of liability and so did my manager and an assistant manager, outside garden is closed from customers until March. I did this to help them out and I offered. This is a one man operation and I am the owner, I am not worried.

    I would have done the same thing. Heck anymore it seems like I do more free jobs then paid, but I don't care I just really like plowing and if I can help out my family and friends I have no problem with that. What size tires are you running, they look like they would rub at full lock.

    Thanks a lot for the comment guys, i didn't think it was that big of a deal, but i'm really not one to pick a fight, i thought maybe he was just annoyed he was a patriots fan. The tires are 315 something.. i can't remember at the moment but i'll check tomorrow morning. They use to rub a little but the bumper is cut back a tad so its okay.

    x2 I can't understand why someone will say something negative when someone helps.

    I dont think EGLC is wrong. You are not plowing for a friend. You are plowing a business. This would be a totally different thread if you had blown you trans and had only been paid your regular wage and $50 in gas. Everyone would be saying that you got screwed.

    I consider it plowing for a friend, although I do understand that it is a business,and I did take the risk and I stand by it, I completely understand that 100%. I have been at that place for 5 years now, and if it makes shorter work out of what I would normally be doing (it was mine and a couple other peoples jobs to shovel outside garden) than it is okay by me. And if my transmission blew moving that little bit of snow straight, it was going to blow somewhere else anyway :)

    The truck does have the 351 with stock 410 gears, but it handles the tires pretty well.

    Also, I am making almost double the $12 an hour you are calling.

    Lastly, its the Flemington/Raritan HD.

    nice truck. get a set of snow tires/rims in the stock 235 85 16 size. i can gaurantee you'll be amazed at how much those 315's are limiting you. you may not notice a big difference in a flat parking lot, but in a driveway with an incline/turns and the difference will be night and day.
