I guess the pool waterfall was put on hold. Send some snow up here.

Very happy with Boss plows, I've got two. Easy to hook up and unhook.

Pricing comparison, my 8' was $4,200 installed and the 10' (pictured) was about $6,200 installed.

Yup, waterfall is on hold. This is actually a picture from the little blizzard we got here the week before Christmas. We got about 5" this weekend though.

Like a tank actually and I don't have chains. That storm, pictured, dumped 24" of snow on us and I had no issues. Loaded, I'd say I'm probably around 24,000 lbs.

I plow a state road with this truck and then jump onto commercial work after that where I run another truck and Bobcat. 4WD, and I own two, is over rated for snow. Sure, driving around is good but nothing beats just having weight. The large dump trucks plowing highways aren't 4WD but have weight on their side. Take the weight out of this truck and its not going to do a lot.........regardless of 2WD or 4WD.

This is as the waterfall is now. This is 1/2 the feature, the other directly next to it.

We had to basically start over because we found out the drainage had yet to be put behind that section of the pool wall but no big deal. It looks messy now but there's a lot of padding etc to cut away, liner to tuck, soil to pack etc but the brunt of the project (large boulder placement) is done....1/2 of it anyway.

^^That's going to look great. So another fall right next to these rocks?

How do you work the liner at the edge of the pool? You can't tuck it in behind or the water will go behind the side wall of the pool, how do you do it? Cut it off right at the edge of the top of the wall?

The liner on the edge is going to be a little tough. Cut along the edge, lots of silicone in front and lots of foam on the back side of the stones to keep the water going to the "fall" to exit.

What you see is only 1/2 the project. Replicate what you see and place it directly to the right of this.........4 falls in all.
