    Dave, I love the dodge. Out of all the trucks that I have had, this truck plows the best. We got 11" here. How did you do? I think when you put a blade on your dodge, your ford will sit.

    We got about 4-6". The Ford did OK with that. You can't kill the 6's torque when multiplied by 1st gear(creeper). I plowed a drive @ work(Norwood), yesterday morning. About a foot deep, bottom 2" were solid. Pushed around the horsehoe section, truck just went sideways. Not enough weight/speed to move that heavy stuff. Had to lift the blade and skim it. Straight shot was OK, backdraggin it was a joke. Paid for my gas $$ to work at least.

    We got snow till 6pm. Then heavy rain till 11pm. Then heavy wind driven snow till 1am Tues. I had everyone done by midnight, slept from 1-4am. Went back out and cleaned up about 2" more. I'm actually glad we didn't get a foot plus of this stuff. Made me think about the V for the Ram....


    I thought you were a dispatcher?? LOL...I like ALL brands, they all have pro's/con's. Have ya driven a new diesel ram lately? I have driven/plowed with all 3 diesels. Wouldn't complain about any of them...but don't tell Dino that.
