Happy New Year to the mechanics freezing their balls of working on that in the field. We make jokes about working on things when it is not cold and miserable. Call your buddy hey what are doing working the plow truck What hell it is like 30 degrees outside way to warm to be working on plow truck. Nothing like being broke down in the middle of a parking lot snow flying scrambling to get something back together

Yeah...he wasn't to happy. It was 5. I sat in my truck and watched. Changing a hydro line is way above my pay grade.

I used to plow commercial. Now I just take care of my own stuff and a few snowbird neighbors. The Gator is good up to about 10", then I drag out the dump truck.

Very nice Dave. Boss plows are by far my brand of choice. And the "V" plow is a no brainer. All but one of my trucks are outfitted with boss except one. I bought the odd duck at a auction for next to nothing. Dam near giving it away. I got a guy that worked for me last year that was plowing slow as a turtle. I asked him what's the problem he say I just can't get used to this V plow. are you kidding me just push the button all the way to the left or right and presto you got a strait blade.

Now that I have got used to the V, after 5 years, I would probably put one on the big truck but I am still running a straight blade. A side note, went to poly on the V plow edge and rubber on the straight. Got tired of shaving my asphalt down and don't want to replace the driveway. Heard stories about why I shouldn't but can't complain about either edge really.

Cool Gator Dave.
I love the Boss V plow. I straight bladed for the first few years then got into a truck with a V. Never looked back.

That is a nice rig you got there dave. I have plowed with both. but I learned on a V well actually I learned a tractor with a blade on the back. I find the V most useful when cleaning up the sidewalk guys leavings or moving piles of snow if there is no skid on the property put her in scoop and away we go. Other than that it is no more than a fancy straight blade. I learned on a handle held but the last few plows I have bought have had joysticks. The fun begins when one of your guys has been running a boss straight blade with a joystick and jumps into truck with a V and it has a joystick you would think the guy is doing a demo for boss. Talk about comedy hour

I have a compact utility tractor (no big loader) that I can use for piling snow if needed. I live in the woods and trees line the drive in most areas. If we get a lot of snow I need to move the windrows back usually late in the season. If we have a snow Armageddon there is a three point blower on the back of the tractor, which doesn't have a cab. That is always the last resort. Only had to use it a few times in past years but nice to know it is there.

Always put the shovels on the side of the salt spreader, not in front of it kids. The conveyor is a moving part.
New kid-"salters not working"
Me-" ok, be right over"
Me-"found the problem"
