    4 " storm, 2" storm, 1" storm, 61/2" storm... 1 truck down with front end problems, my fault, I knew there were issues with it and it should have been fixed this fall, will fix it this weekend. 140 man hours of plowing, hired 1 guy yesterday with no experience, we'll see how that goes...fired one guy this morning. sent him out with 5 hour list and told him to call me when they were done, never did get a hold of him the rest of the night, turns out he went home after he was done, so now he's done. Now I just need to find 1 more decent guy and will be going strong again. If this winter is anything like the last week I might go bald but make a buck or two...

    Ahh, the joys... So you guys are getting more snow than us again this year. Good luck w/ the truck and manpower. And BTW how do you like your 1875? I just picked one up.

    I think it works great, but it's also the only one ive ever used... last year I spread wet salt sand and I had to have a guy ride in the back to push it down. It kept bridging. since then I took off the shield inside the hopper thats over the auger and no more problems...
