    I know the pic is pretty crap, but all I had was my iphone and it was starting to get pretty dark. Typically I bring my camera, but I forgot this night. This is why you don't stop fast with a skid when you have a full bucket of slushy snow all the way up in the air.....especially at the edge of a ramp!

    BTW---This wasn't me, just some poor sap I happened to drive by.

    I've done that only with manure when I worked at a dairy in college. Scary as hell. side note Not braggin but you get to be a pretty good operator when a small mistake will cover you in cow crap. I walked home 2 times. wasnt getting in the truck after being souped on.

    That is why they have lap bars and seat belts. If it is like mine it shut down when that happened and the operator was stuck like that till he figured it out.

    Quicker (and safer) actually to use little 1 ton dumps with the skid. Dumping over the side and moving that mountain again afterwards. Hey did this guy post yesterday about pricing shoveling roofs:laughing:

    Ya. I actually drove up there to see if the guy needed a hand, but there was another couple guys there already. His cage must have been really rattled after the cab hit that concrete wall.

    I would need to clean my pants.
    We dump ramps every storm. I have neevr been close to tipping like that but got a good bounce going and felt like I was going to go over not fun.

    Judging by the other pile they leave it after they dump it off. It would be near impossible for the skid to go off the edge but I'm sure it was scary as heck.
