Looks like a nice salt run.
The real money is in the salt.

Ain't that the truth. Nobody told me that when I first started playing this game. My first year I only had a plow. Went out and bought a brand spanking new boss 9'2" DXT I think I maybe got 80 hours which I thought was great then I bought a salt spreader for the next year and they told me yeah we will have no trouble keeping you busy that they got 240 hours the year before I was like whaaatttt??? I don't know how the plow guy make it or why they even do it. Last year our plows got maybe 30 hours that's only $2300.00 minus fuel, maintenance , wear and tear on your truck you are dam near working for free

All the plow guys do is move the snow so the salt can go down.
I've been out since 1pm today. We got a 4" burst of wet and heavy. Dropped 22ton already after doing a scrape with the loaders and trucks.

What a shit show 1 guy with 2 trucks broke down before we even got the call to go out there was a chance we were going to push so I drove 80 miles round trip to haul his skid to his property so I didn't have to worry about that. Then middle of the storm they are calling for 2in call the plow oh shit. 10 seconds later hold off on the plows it appears to be melting . 3 people on all my truck were the only plows. I live close enough to run/send them to get their plows so then the plan was to salt everything again and me and my assistants had to go back and clean up sidewalk snow that they toss off in the drive so me and my guys kicked back to wait

Sure I had 2 beer and I was out. Going back out tonight to do refreeze/ spot salt on the high profiles. We may not get a lot of snow but people here are so dam scared of you would think we get your weather down. I bet I seen 10 cars of the side of the road today. All your normal suspects jeeps, 1500 trucks even saw a old Honda crx in the ditch. These Are those folks that come flying by me and I am in a f350 dually with a 1000lb pound plow 1500lb 3 yard salt spreader heaped and think did you really just do that. Passing the plow truck really isn't the smartest approach

Nice set up Shawn. That's a money maker if you ever get anything to salt.
I'm sitting here after the present unwrapping fest looking at 5" that dropped overnight. Another 1-3" today. I say let it drop and go out tonight.

I forgot to mention the 15 leaf springs on this thing. It don't ride like a Cadillac but it could haul a few of them. My assistant we say oh we finally got some weather wish we got more I am ready to GO. I said More huh? I said I got a buddy in Rochester he said they got 102in last year... He said,"Well I am not sure I would want that much". I just had to laugh. We are going out again tonight to salt (treated) it is some moisture supposed to come through and drop to 13. should be a quick in and out

Well, it would ride like a Lincoln cause it's a Ford.
I bet loaded down it's got a nice land yacht ride to it. I can tell the difference in the ride when I'm low on fuel in both the truck tank and transfer tank. When both are full it's almost a plush ride.

We are going out at midnight to plow and salt our properties. Nice way to start spending my birthday day, plowing snow. I got mini cupcakes to hand out to my guys! Lol
