    That's pushing less then 5cm or 2" of snow, with not salt/sand in the back.
    The old trucks with a load of sand, doing the same job uses less fuel.


    Next year when both trucks run 8-14 hours a day 7 days a week I think they will really notice the difference.

    Burn through 572 litres of fuel last night. Started at 11pm, and ended at 11.30 am


    Forgot to plug in my block heater, and my engine wouldn't start:hammerhead:


    Now I sleep for the next four hours, then head to the dentist.
