    Well, i have been wanting to post this up since our first plowable event a couple of weeks ago, but found myself rather busy to do so... Anyhoo, our season started with a breakdown on our first lot at 2:20ish AM, lost almost completely, hydraulics for the plow so i had to drive er back to base, i pulled the pump took a 3 hour nap and then got up and proceeded to tear it down according to a Meyer troubleshooting flow chart...replaced the o-rings on the B and C valves. Changed the fluid in the pump while I was at it... Up and running again by 11AM. Since then, no problems until last thursday when i found that our battery is goin dead so that's gonna run us 100-130 bux... Got both snowblowers up and runnin today, even though one has a flat the tire is rigid enough to run it if needed. So yea, hows everybody elses season goin?

    season has been slow too. Just before we got our first event my transmission went out, then the day of the first storm my water pump went bad. I got it into the shop and it only took them 2 hours to get it back to me so it didn't turn out too bad.

    Slow season????? Man I have been so busy spreading a whole 8 bags of salt so far. I think I might have earned a vacation already. I have come to find out there is only so many times you can go through equipment before it gets old fast. Every time they call for something here it goes right around us.
