Well guys I figured I would give everyone an update(for those not on plowsite) as I havent been on here in over a week. We got hammered with over 30" of snow the last 7days. First storm dump almost 2' in less than 24hrs. Then we got another 6-8" this wendsday. So I have litterally been plowing snow for 7days only stopping to sleep/eat. Plowed 32hrs straight friday-saturday and wasnt even tired but had to come home cause I got stuck twice and had to keep calling my dad, so I slep for 6hrs then went out for another 19 and have basically been working like that since.

I have had both trucks working(dad driving white one) and was also able to pick up another account or 2 plus I did dozens and dozens of extra driveways because some guys couldnt keep up as Pittsburgh is not used to this kind of snow.

Many times we had to plow alot of roads just to get to accounts and I literally plowed every road in my whole nieghborhood. All my equipment has took a heck of a beating but everything is still running strong.

We were in a state of emergency for a long time. There is still alot of cleanup/snow hauling etc to do and more snow is expected to come so I will be real bus but I have tons of pictures and some videos that I will be working on getting up soon.

Nice videos. Yeah same send some snow down to RI. The last storm that you got we were supposed to get like 15 inches but only 3 fell. How does the Snow Dog plow compare to the Meyer? What one do you like best?

Lol They predicted 7-14 here and we got over 20" on the 6th!
Its tough I like em both. I use the meyer more but it deep snow the Dogg seemed better since its bigger/taller. The Dogg also seemed to do the roads a bit nicer maybe because its heavier. But for our normal 1-3" snow falls I seem to like the lil meyer better
