• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

what a wonderful day?

Well fellas, it is 5:45 am, and so far today i had my sander truck shear the lugs off one side, lost one tire and rim, lost several hrs. labor, and have to sand my run by hand, which took 4 hrs. to do with a sander, i can't get it towed for atleast another couple hours and we are supposed to get a big storm tommorrow. And the day has just begun. I'm not whining, just a LITTLE P.O.'D. <p>What a wonderful day..........?<p><p>----------<br>Stephen<br>

What size truck is it? I bet it is an auto. I had an 86 k-30 with an auto, and the constant shifting from forward to reverse loosened the rear lug nuts and I sheared all but two wheel studs. So now I check the rear lugs every 3 hrs of plowing. Good thing is it only took about an hour to replace them, but I had to wait till the next day to do it.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org

The truck I was driving was a 85 K-30 flatbed dually with 6.2/4spd manual,so I think it makes no difference.We had just had all 4 new tires put on 2 days before from a Big local supplier that does mostly bigrigs.The road service crew wanted to charge them for the call and repairs!,so we did it ourselves at 3:30am with 5&quot; in hte road.Ah the joy of plowing.<p>----------<br>John D<br>
