My F350 sits pretty high, so the only way to get the right angle on the plow frame is to unhook it on blocks or a pallet. I had the plow on a pallet, drove up to it, lined up on first shot! Got out, gave it a couple yanks to line up the pins and the jack-stand promptly broke through the pallet. There it sat, jammed on the pallet, and too low to engage the plow frame on the truck. I went and got a big pry-bar and some blocks, and after 15 minutes I had it blocked at the correct height. Drove the truck ahead, and the instant it touched the plow it fell of the blocks and halfway off the pallet. To top it off, when I jumped out of the truck to assess the situation and stepped in fresh dog *censored*. At that point I decided to park the truck. I am so fed up with that plow I am not even going to look at it until the snow has melted. If it really does snow 10" the guy up the road can make a fast $30 and plow my driveway. :mad:

I'm so glad I sold all the plow trucks and salt truck.I enjoy the snow then go out and snowblow my drive,don't miss any of the crap.

You are a smart man Rob. It sounds like the plow gods are wispering in your ear and the little man in your head is getting the message.I have learned the hard way to always listen to the little man in my head.Life is easier that way. Mike

Ya may have another round coming, it's not too bad here right now but they are saying there's more to come later today & tonight. It seems like the jet stream has decided on a different route than normal & it never goes the same too often. :?

Me too. I got 6 inches. Had to use my work van as a plow this morning to get out of my driveway. The snow berm from the plow was over the damn bumper cover on the van. I was running late, didn't want to waste more time shoveling; that's why I have a 13 year old. So, I put it in gear and floored it.
