I've never even plowed snow. So I dont know which is better or worse, I am just goin off what I've read and been told.. I wasnt comparing a tracked machine to a regular skid I was comparing one kind of trackmachine to another...

Did you happen to see that tractor trailer across the street from Uncle Bob's who got himself jackknifed soooo bad?? They had a huge wrecker come straighten him out....he was stuck there all afternoon.
Ya traffic there is a pain so when i was waiting for a chance to move i snapped a few pics. If i get caught chit chatn to much i could get in trouble so...

I use Fuji FinePix S5100 4.0 mega pixels 10x optical zoom so i can get real close even though your all the way across the street.


Yes i did see that rig stuck against the pole. I got rear ended by an F-350 p/u like mine near by across from the bar and Brookside st. during the time that tractor trailer was stuck. Yeah i saw a massive Lowell Fleet Wrecker go by just up the street after i dealt with the police for the accident and plowed 2 accounts so i figure they got the tractor trailer out.

I got a pic as i was driving by

Not that easy and it would get damaged. they were workn on it for a while. even had it away from the pole but it kept sliding down the hill back into the pole. looked like the guy plowing the lot by the loading dock got his dump truck stuck too because he was digging out by the rear wheels.

Pro Turf, How did you go from where you were in 01 to the 05 pic? Did you get a bank loan to kickstart growth? What did you find enabled you to grow so fast?
