We plow in 4-low ALL the time, no exceptions. Okay, our Diesel truck plows in 4-high cause he has to. (no engine RPM)<p>In the last 3 years:<p>Rebuilt the Diesel transmission 4 times.<p>10 gas trucks (4 low plowers) rebuilt 1 transmission in 3 years.<br>

Alot of that has to do with the fact that the Ford auto and 5 speed are just not up to handling the torque from the PS diesel, and that is a quote from a Ford engineer I met in Pittsburg in June at the SIMA symposium.<br>They hoped that the 99's had fixxed that problem.<br>Diesels generate alot more heat, and the factory coolers can not handle the heat dissapation effectively, so they tear up trannies.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org
