Photos and stuff from work.

It barely snowed at all last night. 3-4" We've been getting dumped on with 12"+ in 8-10 hour periods for the past couple weeks. So since things calmed down I got some pictures. Still trying to figure out my video. I'm going to buy a Go pro Camera and get some operating videos soon. promise.

Photo from the end of the shift, all the equipment looking pretty clean.



Old Pt. Since the other truck has a brine setup this sees a fair bit of use sanding and salting. It also has a 425hp cat under the hood, that is new.



Snow's been too soft to drive on, so I've been using the little cat to carve down the bank.


Working in the smallest lot. Only had aobut 3-4" of snow but it was blowing so there were some foot drifts here and there.




Only half way across the same lot but as you can see it adds up.



End of a push.


Standing beside my cab.

I need to talk less. Oh and by the way. I'm the only person on the mountain at this point. It's 2.30am both machines are running, ones about to slip over the edge. And I got the other one out, by myself. Safety first.

You need a bigger blade on that loader. That International looks sweet.

They won't let me put chains on it, and everything here is wet, even the snow, so the asphalt is always glazed over with ice. The loaders don't have lockers or traction control, so they just spin out constantly. I ran a WA500 with a box at another mountain, and that thing could push 30 yards of snow.

There was a message on the board when I came in saying "950H stuck, please pull out"


Run two machines one guy, run back and forth, hope the other doesn't slip back or roll

My shift is usually midnight until noon. Most of my work happens in the dark.

Thirsty thirsty trucks. They need fuel every 4-5 hours.
