    A view from the cab after a small storm went through. This subdivision is very rural (Colorado) and has 12 miles of road. Some of which is very challenging do to steepness, wind (some areas have no trees or such) and snowfall amounts.

    2nd Pass

    This is after my 1st pass. I would have liked to come the other way and use my wing but I had to knock down some huge drifts first further down the road.

    SMALL storm, what did it dump two feet !! Thats an impressive looken truck, really looks like it could do you right. I for one appreciate you taking time to post those photos. I own a 1993 F800 4X4 (dumptruck) and am considering a large plow like that on it, and a 8 yrd sander on back for extra ballast..:cool: Good Luck

    One Pass

    Another pic of the drift area. This is after one pass. See why I call it The Top of The World. We are looking down on Middle Park. The Gore range is Shrouded in the distance. North Central Colorado.

    A question, on the picture of the whole truck, i noticed how far down the rubber snow foil type of thing hangs down and i see that on alot of plows, What is the purpose of it hanging down down so low? Thanks,

    Hey MCWLANDSCAPING, They put those skirts on the plow to keep snow from blowing over the top during highway clearing. I bought the plow at a Nebraska State highway auction. Didn't bother to take it off. I also have 2 other plows for my 1971 P2427 that came with it when I purchased the truck. A 13ft. one way And a massive V plow that is like new. Unfortunatly a 2 way is what I need to speed things up so I purchased this one at auction for 350.00 and refurbished it myself. So far it has been excellant. I put about 30 hrs. of work into it before using it though. Thanks, Grant.
