    We are at long last seeing a little bit of relief from our 2 year drought situation-

    Received about 14 inches of snow over the last 5 days, so I've been busy clearing our house/shop/yard area, corrals, and roads-

    So, If I'm not here, I'm most likely in the tractor seat!

    Nice! That tractor is a beast. We got about 8” today with another 1-2 tomorrow and 2-4 Sunday. I am planning to get my old Case out and use the snowblower for this one. I may make a little you tube video of the old machine at work.

    my poor old truck is feeling the pain, been running without brakes since Tuesday and now my batteries seem to think it's time to replace.

    Brakes and a battery! That's a bummer.... This weather is hard on stuff, I've had a breakdown almost daily here.... some are operator induced (not me), others are just old equipment being old.

    I really need the roads to be clear down there tomorrow. We got 0" of snow up here but I'm towing from Higgins Lake to Lapeer.

    I plowed mine out today and then dug out a few neighbors. Had to put the plow to work several times this winter. This photo was taken earlier, I didn't really plow all of the snow away.

    Isn't the ultra mount great? I have the 8.5' V-plow with Ultra mount and love it have the mount on both my trucks so can use the plow on either.

    I love my plow! It is very easy to mount and take off. I used to leave my old plow mounted most of the winter. Now it's only on for plowing.

    Got a workout yesterday, the 2in we were suppose to get turned out to be 6, pretty sure I got a half shaft going now, batteries came back to life, think my toggle switch stuck while I was in having coffee and drained um never seen it so bad when my dash/gauges wouldn't light and the plow won't go down, 8hrs on the charger is working for my 15 year old batteries. I've now plowed 5 times since the 6th, guessing somewhere around 20in total, good thing it's light and fluffy.
