Default Ready to plow

I take off the nerf bars & aluminum wheels,put on the steel wheels& running boards. They really help to keep the sand out of the doorjambs. The truck is pressure washed after every plow session,greased every other & hand washed& waxed often,SALT SUCKS!!! Can't forget my 5 yr. old co pilot JOHNNY!!!!

Nice truck. I remember my uncle used to pick me up in the middle of the night to help him plow, I skipped alot of school to help load salt hoppers and shovel sidewalks started when I was like 13-14 and been doing it ever since, haven't lately with working shift worn and no snow .

Too bad you're not gonna get any snow, I spent 600 fixing brakes and exhaust on my plow truck and have plowed once.

And to add to that I installed a plow.

Yea guys doing contracts this year are making out good but they deserve it after last year. I spent 600 on my plow truck to get it ready this year and have plowed once, sucks but if I didn't you know it would have snowed every day.

Yea good prep is a must, Igrease it just about every time I go out. Hey Tireman 9669 I went to a vintage snowmobile show in Pavillion NY 2 yrs ago. Winter here was 48 hrs on 48 hrs off,kind of like a firemans work schedule! suppoedly we got 40+ inches for the season I guess seems moer like 20! It might as well just warm up for good now!
