Pretty good hit WNY. We got the same advisory going too. Looks like another 6" to 10" here on the Maine coast. I don't really mind as long as it's not that heavy slushy stuff.
The old blower just don't like it and clogs up if it's to wet. I wish I never sold my plow truck :x . Was pressured into it by the little lady telling me it wasn't a member of the family (like some placed around these parts) toothy My shoulders are sore from pushing that old Gilson blower through the heavy stuff. It's made like a tank from the 70's with original briggs 8hp. Still does the bizz too but is really heavy. That's prolly why it's still around though. Could use a new impeller from slingin rocks and clinkers :D but I really need a plow for the length of the drive.

How does that wheeler actually plow MichaelAnthony? We have a ton of them around here and a great network of trails from the old railroad tracks they took up. I see many with plows but I got to wonder if they really plow all that well? I would think any more than a few inches and you have to take small bites? Probably need to hire a plow as much as I hate too. :x Did ya see this rig from the "plow thread" More my style!

...nice pic, the dude looks real serious I wonder if a pic of me on the 4 wheeler with the plow will look as silly in 70 yrs. The 4 wheeler worked the balls, I went out thursday night and plowed the first 8 in. and wen out yest. and did the other 8 in. The 4 wheeler is a tank, I bought a universal plow on ebay and ironically the dealer was from hermon, maine. My only problem was the first storm last week hit us with the wet crap and the plow couldn't move it without folding foward.......so I went to tractor supply and bought 2 springs 3 inches shorter than the ones that came with the plow and attached them to the plow with 2, 4 inch j bolts and stiffened the plow up real good and she will go through anything mothernature will throw at us. Next is studdin' the tires with a bunch of the little self tappers with the 1/4 inch hex head on'em. I'll get some pic's tomorrow of the retro-fit. I had to build the porch this summer, an avalanch would slide off the metal roof and barricade the side door! :shock: :wtf:

I have an automatic snow removal system. When it snows the kids down the road show up and clean the driveway. Very easy system for me.

Right up into high school me and my buddies went around and knocked on doors, it was pretty easy to spot a house that needed shoveling, we made a killing. Now, I haven't seen one kid, not one damn kid with a shovel walking around trying to make some dough, bunch of lazy ass panzies at home playing video games eatin' hot pockets.

It started snowing again sometime this afternoon, and really kicked in around 5 pm. My guess is we got about 4" since late afternoon. Looks like I will be plowing again in a few hours.
