Well it had to happen first real snow and a guy Jack Knifed his 1 ton 4X4 with a BIG 5th Wheel Stock Trailer 2 miles from the house. 1/2 of the rig and trailer went over the bank he was lucky it did not flip and drop the other 50 ft down. I bet he was cleaning his shorts out!! This curve get 3-4 every winter coming down it. I allways worry when I take the bus up it with the rigs that go to fast down it hitting me. Took 2 tow trucks to get him back on the road. No one hurt and no animals in the trailer or it would have just went the rest of the way over and fliped. A big dump truck went over and fliped last year in the snow. Crushed the cab flat but the driver was lucky he was laying down when it went. Had to use jaws of life to get him out. Mark H.

i went out this morning to deliver a loader.snow came up in a hurry wasn't suppose to get here till noon . every nut with a car was out what a mess.some people think if you can go in snow, you can stop in snow and they drive just as fast as if yhere was no snow.didn't have any close shaves but was a bit carsful with the trailer.

gotta slow down in the winter, especially on them corners and if your hauling anything. you should build yourself a blade for that truck, could get one of them cheap electric winches for lifting , HF has them cheap,sure makes plowing fast.

Just plowed the 300 ft drive complete in 15 mins with the tractor. Supposed to another 5+ inces tomorrow. The winch on the M-37 would work for lifting the blade up just need to get a blade for it. Just need to be careful how high it goes cause the 7,500+lb winch can rip the blade right off the truck! Mark H.

haha yup i suppose that winch could handle it, takes me about 10 minutes to do mine with the truck an hour with the tractor.
