    Before I have to run out to plow some more snow, I thought I'd throw a few pictures up from some recent storms and land clearing projects.

    First up: a quick mowing job for a local cranberry grower.

    Next up: some pictures of the industrial park I plow with 2 other loaders. One loader is a 930H with a 16' Daniels plow, and the other loader is a 624K with a 14' Artic Sectional.

    How is the performance of the Arctic on the loader?

    very cool.. literally. I've never seen a 16' plow and imagine it can push a mountain of snow. I don't think I have to worry about that anytime soon. LOL.

    Do you have problems with debris getting thrown into the roadways on the clearing projects?

    Dountman- The artic performs great on that loader. It seems to do a great job scraping down to pavement.

    Yellow- I thought my 13' wide plow/box was wide. Once I saw that 16' plow with the extensions on it my concept of wide changed lol. The Daniels plow is great for getting under the front of trailers but it gets a little unwieldly if you get a lot of snow or you get in a tight area.

    For the highway clearing, depending on the thickness of the material we are cutting and how much it overhangs the road, we can get some debris on the lane we have blocked off. That's why I carry a big blower on the back of my truck and we'll just blow the road off quickly at the end of the day.

    Well without running the Deere I can't make a fair comparison. What are you looking to compare Nedly?

    Nothing really, just wondering what you thought of them lol. I ran the highway depts new 936, its a nice machine, feels a lot different than our deere. It would take me running it a few hours to get comfortable in it.
