Too lazy to post pics but I got a skid steer and a tractor - both with studded tires, and a snowblower that I can use on both machines. Spent 10 plus hours plowing, blowing, and digging out snow drifts and ice this weekend.
I also stock about 500lbs of salt in case I need to clear the private road of ice.
Moving snow is like mowing grass - no matter how many fancy toys you buy the chore still kind of sucks.
If it were'nt in Commiefornia San Diego is where Id relocate...or at least 30 miles east of SD. Not quite as warm as S. Florida but little humidity, and I could hang out with all my fellow operators.You are in California and you pity us?
Time for a mental health check there bro
In 96 I lived on a tiny dirt road just off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Amherst Co. Virginia. Woke up to find 39" of snow in my front yard. Took them 3 days but they finally got an Allis Chalmers about that size up to us, followed by the plow. As soon as I got dug out I packed my truck and left for costa Rica. Hell of a trip but thats for another thread.
Sweet story bro.60" blade on the Honda rancher. If that won't move it, I simply say fuck it and fire up the snowmobile.
No use wasting good deep snow. I've rode around town before and while they may burp a siren, flash their lights, and yell.... they're too busy being stuck to do anything about it.
