  15. Why is this so mezmerizing to watch?

    Before patrol trucks had wings , cty had 44 p trucks on sections & (12) Oshkosh, FWDs and Walters with wings when the blades couldn't keep up with the pushback. Had about 8-10 blades/graders & blademan for snow removal. Also for heavy snow winters cty mounted a huge v plow on a IH Hough rubber tire Dozer , that was used during construction season with a straight dozer blade. It would go down in ditches & roll snow like no body's business. .
  16. Why is this so mezmerizing to watch?

    If you catch a man hole cover. or curb at 45 mph there could be damage to plow/wing and or have loose dental pieces floating in the mouth. Unless you're plowing rural sections without obstacles. I've knocked a few mboxes off & always picked up any aerial mail . Our county policy was if mbox hit by snow. ..nothing done , if hit by plow/ wing then county obligation to repair or replace. Our couny wings are mounted to a front post & rear pole/s to mid truck frame.
  17. Why is this so mezmerizing to watch?

    Try a 11' one way & 9" wing @ 25-30 mph in 4-6" snow,.... watch the white stuff fly over mailboxes and hit any house too close to the road. Sheer pleasure!

  22. 710 plow

    It,s a 710 automatic ? Spring bolts tight? New reset springs? That's what the bottoms are supposed to do is trip. I have had consecutive bottoms trip one after another in rocky ground. Sounds like shotgun blasts when tripping.
