I guess I will just stick to tile... You cats have gotten more snow in a week than we get in a year. Mike what are you plowing with? Truck? Tractor? Craig do you ever run the skids or the wheel loader? I have a apartment complex that we do and there is always clean up the next day cause of all the cars I let my skid driver sleep and I run my skid, I have to say I wouldn't want to do it all the time but it is a nice change not having to shift gear all the time.

I can run the Bobcats with pushers, a Polar Trac and a loader.
I have run our Komatsu 270 and Cat 950 with the 10 and 12' pushers before. I need some more seat time to get as good as my regular operators. Watching a good operator with a 22' pusher in a tight lot is snowflake porn. I like my truck but jumping in the loader for a night of snow removal is a nice change of pace.

We just got 4 of these Polar Trac's. We have the 72' blower and 6' Vblades for them. Pretty fun machines.

So the Smith spreader is on hold til I can make a trip up there and I found a smoking deal on this 2 year old 10' 3 yard all electric I am not sure they really used this thing man it is clean. I priced one of these a few years ago $6500 out the door. Guy sold it to me for $3500.00

this guy has a super anal perfectionist mechanic on staff that sprays cleans lubes everything. there wasn't a connection or a bearing that wasn't covered in grease. His gas spreader motors were covered top to bottom with white lithium grease it was pretty dam impressive

That is a clean spreader.
Good find.
Do you run any hydro on your spreaders or are they all electric?

All of my spreaders are gassers except the one I just bought. 2 of my 6 spreaders are stainless and one is a 4 year old steel that in its life it only seen salt last season. Before that it was all sand. My plan is to put electric motors on them and set them up just like the buyer's. It is about $1000.00 to do the dual motor variable speed and since I am doing variable speed I don't need to mess with the gear ratio. The engines are only a year old so I probably won't do anything soon unless they shit the bed. I have everything on the shelf to convert 1 right now to see how that goes but I think I got it all figured out.

The Tug Hill Plateau is east about a hour away from me. Shawn, if you want to move and push snow, move here.

Snowmobiles are second vehicles in Tug Hill. I've driven through there in the summer. Some of the houses have doors on the second floor for when the snow is too high on the first floor. Crazy!

Well that is just bat shit crazy. I bet that every other house up there has a plow truck or tractor. I went through the Mickey mouse wiring on that 10 footer got everything working like it should. Man this guy had wing nut connectors and duct tape holding the light wiring together. There was water, rust and green grime on every single connection. I am not sure how it lasted 2 years
