You should be getting some snow! I know we have the last few days and I have to plow again this morning even tho it is still snowing and will be for a few days to come in a row. Just like to keep up with it. Mark H.

We finally got a decent snow here in Missouri, too. I have three granddaughters and a husband outside playing in the white stuff now, and Christmas music playing on the CD player. I think the girls and I will make Christmas cookies after while.

i was out plowing last night, went out and fed the animals about 9 and it felt like it might turn to rain , had about 8 inches down , so i took the plow truck cleaned up most of it , then the winch on it started acting up, think maybe the battery is low, have to charge it up today,sure good plowin with that truck though, cuts the time way down and a warm dry cab is nice, but i,ll be finishin up today with the loader on the tractor, thinking maybe a guy should put two batterys in just have to try and remember how to hook them up, did a long time ago,in another truck and it made a big difference,its cloudy here and warm but not snowing yet.

I have 2 battrys in my truck but only use one and I have a solenoid switch to charge and use it to also start the truck with if needed. The have battry isolators but I did not want my spare one in the system till it was needed. Mark H.

yup i m gonna have to check it today , either a bad switch or weak battery, let it run for a bit an rev it and the winch would kick in , the alternator was pretty hot when i finished too , so maybe i,ll be rebuilding that to i don,t know,but i think i,ll defenitely need two batterys.

Since your battry is only realy for starting you may want to get a larger Altinator to keep up with the useage. Mark H.

its got a pretty good size one in it now as i used to use this truck for everything , trailer haulin etc.might be burin out or maybe a switch or connection problem, got the battery on the charger , cleaning, tighten, drying out all the connections and putting dielectric grease on everything, but im thinking alternator.

Were gettin some snow but it's that worthless real fine stuff. to light to stick but enough to make it just about unberably annoying.
