    So it's been about a month since i've been able to log on because we've been very fortunate around here (60.5" on snow in the past three weeks basically)...so my question is, how is everyone else's seasons going so far?

    Around Indy the only things we get to do is salt. I did see aguy this morning pushing slush on the east side,wasted effort, then he was salting. This has not been a good year for plows here.:realmad:

    Been going well here. Few hiccups to start the season, but those seem to be worked out, we're at 40'' here so far this season, which is well above average (again). Getting a little worried about salt though.

    76 inches in 19 days. Started with a 23 inch storm on dec 17th. When we were not plowing we had to haul out the piles. Finally got a warm up the last couple of days. Now were are ready to do it all over again.

    That is some awesome equipment!

    How do you like it compared to a traditional loader/backhoe with a box? The airport truck seems pretty bulky for that?

    If I drive from Buffalo to Brockport in a storm can I try it out?? lol
