    If you plow or blow before the snow plow comes... More seat time to clear the end of the driveway. So what's the problem?

    When you clear 125 of them in a shift, the faster you get done the better. Sometimes things are about getting the job done with as little seat time as possible.

    Even with my own, I'd rather have to go out once and be done with it.

    Do you have any pics of your setup???

    Sorry to the professionals out there. Did not mean to insult. Strictly speaking as a homeowner. I may have mis-understood the context of the OP that it was commercial related.

    I was pulled over when I was a teenager and the cop says "I pulled you over because you have a tail light out" and he proceeded to write me a ticket. I asked him "what are you gonna do about the headlight that's burned out"? He said, "well I guess I'll write one for that too". I laughed and said, well, it's your vehicle that has the headlamp out." He had that deer in the headlights look, shook his head, and then told me to have a nice day. No ticket that day! lol!

    I thought I did but none show the beacons (it is not very conspicuous when not lit), I gotta take some next sortie. Don't expect anything like your vid though

    I sure didn't take offense. Many tractor owners don't use it as often as they'd wish so when a good pretense falls from the sky it would be foolish to ignore it. Commercial snow removal can be fun actually, but we're always pressed for time, operate machinery at less than ideal hours. I positively hate clearing during rush hours. I don't like blocking traffic when maneuvering out of parking lots and such having to wtch for motorists who don't realize implements that are up must come down sometimes and stop their car underneath the raised snow pusher. It is much more pleasant at night.

    I agree, I love to plow at night, there are way to many idiots out during the day. When I plow parking lots during business hours, I bring my wife and she directs trafic to alow me to plow. I had not dropped a plow in the month of January

    At some lots it's cool, they have attendants or security guards directing traffic, sometimes even cops lend a hand when I have no choice but to intrude on the roadway in traffic. Cops here tend to consider even private clearing as a public service so they give a hand, which is appreciated. But as we know, they are not always around.

    January was quiet here as well but it's snowing now
