    That is a crap load of snow. Why wouldn't you keep the side plow up on the first pass so theres less resistance on the truck and just vplow the first pass?

    Bean there, done that. His problem is the bank on both sides. It will just blow in even deeper with the next wind.

    Lake roads suck. I have plowed for 10 hours one direction, only to turn around and come back. To see the road has even more snow in the road.

    1 bank on the down wind side and to widen the road drag the snow from windward side and fling it over the downwind side bank.

    No Downhill side

    Problem is: There is a dirt bank on the east side. You cannot put anymore snow over there. I to have "been there done that" As any good plowman knows. You cannot judge how someone has plowed something unless you have seen the area in both summer and winter! Grant.

    Hi Grant

    So how has the snow been out there this season?
    Looks like you are having a good mid season...

    True enough, I didn't see the dirt bank.

    I had just plowed out a cabin road that a V plow came out of the night before. The road was full bank to bank.

    Lots O snow!

    Oshkosh, We've been getting a bunch this year. Big chief is actually profitable! Was glad I caught some V-Plow action for once. I don't use the V unless I have to. Not real efficient for everday road plowing but man did it work GOOD!! Grant.
