    17 hours in one lot, sounds like you have the wrong piece of equipment. I would go nuts in one place.

    17 hours there? That is nothing. 36 hours straight is my record. home for a couple hour nap then back out for another 20, home for 3 hours, out for 18 more, home for 6 hours and back out to do final cleanups. 17 hours is just a warm up for most guys....payup

    My record is 118 Hrs. straight with no sleep and no breaks at home. During that storm I couldn't even get home since the back roads where I live where all drifted shut and their was no way a pickup was going to plow through. I was getting paid by the hour to stay out so I stayed out longer then anyone. After the 3rd consecutive day of plowing it got easier but by the 5th day I was done and felt like I was going to die so I stopped and went home.

    It is good to see a bunch of pricks are members on here. If you don't believe me well I don't really care since I got the check after the hours I worked. Some people just strive harder in life to accomplish what they want and everyone else wants it handed to them on a platter.

    I'm pretty sure it's impossible to stay awake for 118 hours straight - no catnaps, no reclining in the chair for 5 minutes, no stopping at Waffle House for food. You would have to take a coma to recover from that.

    We're just bustin' your chops a little here - but don't come in and us how to accomplish something in life. I had nothing handed to me - and like most people on this board, I work my ass off to get what I want.

    Anyways, welcome to the board... Tell us a little about what kind of equipment you are running.

    Please tell us about this snow event. Also if you have a google map of it so we can better see what you were plowing and details of the snow and do you plow other lots.

    And you are always welcome to this site!
