Looks like you fellas in upstate NY got the real dump. Talked to a friend of mine last night who lives in "Fabulous" (Fabius) NY and he was not a happy camper. FF I think he lives near you. Anyway they say 22" here so a couple of more cups of Java and then fire up the JD.

I think I may have yucked up... I usually like to go out and tool around the dingleweeds when no one is on the roads, I find it very peaceful. They closed the roads here yesterday and decided to be a law abiding citizen and just stay home. I figure once it stops bein nasty I get the 110 out and clear up the whole mess. Well guess where the truck is. yep , square in front of the tractor shed and the truck aint goin nowhere till the snow gets cleared up :doh: :wacko: I don't know how much we got but its north of 24" and its still snowin.

I don't know how much we got but it was way over 2'. This morning we were the same temp as Chazy but no wind roaring off the lake. The main difference is that I think the major storms are over. I have a new respect for Canadian engineering.

In Montreal city the Bombardier SW48 is the premier snow clearer. The plow is a little small but the 110HP (I was told today it is not 75HP as I thought and that makes more sense) Perkins is a monster and the rubber tracks are to die for. The main thing is the cab is heated, defrosted, wipers, washers, very powerful LED lights, emergency flasher, back up camera that I put in last summer and super comfy but tough to climb into for me anyway. 95 AMP alternator, 110v inverter and 12v power. Perhaps I will live in it.



or even



I'm in love.

PS, It happened as I predicted. My neighbors are asking when I can visit. Stave has a house on a fairly steep hill with a fabulous expensive brick driveway put in 20 years ago. The surface has sunk where the cars wheels go up and now a 5' monster sheet of ice at the bottom that no one can move thanks to the snow plows. His JD is stuck.....

Life's is just a bowl of cherries. so why do I just get the pits.

My John Deere snow blower did a hell of a job cutting a path down to the shop and close to the buildings. I am working on the rest with my plow truck.

A few pictures from this morning. Last one is a treat for my helpers. Maple syrup on snow, enjoyed on popsicle sticks.

The 1st video was a big disappointment..
No sound :what:
They had some stupid music playing.. :mad3:
What is wrong with the music from a Perkins ? :confused:
So I decided to try the second video.. :D

I must ask this question tho..

Why doesn't anyone install bigger blades (higher & wider) or even a V-plow ????

Yeah, they closed the roads here, too, .... starting at the end of my driveway. The highway plows pushed up a snow bank over 4 feet high. :shock:

Just as well, I can't see my station wagon anymore. Every time I look out in the back yard, I keep thinking of that movie title, "Dude where's my car ?" :D

Just works better in their application. They do make a bulldozer blade for them and I have a beat up 7' blade that I have yet to fit. I will PM my music choice for you to review before posting in the future. :doh:

It is not meant as a Perkins review. It's just how they clean the streets in Montreal who the phk cares about the sound. :doh: :doh:

I realize that the 48" blade works great for clearing the city sidewalks ,but even videos I've seen of that machine in open country seem to still use the small blade.

I didn't realize that the Montreal video was a video put together by you. However the music happened to get on there,it should be the sounds of the machine at work,not some person's stupid choice of music. :doh:

I also realize that the video was not a review of a Perkins diesel engine,i was just saying that the Perkins would have been a much better sound. :)

Did you see the 15'+ python in Key Largo.


Only saw it on the news. Did see a few black panthers (The 4 legged variety ) and lots of gators. :D
