Plow fell off...

Not mine... thank god.

The guy I was plowing with at work has a Western 7.5ft. Pro Plow. I'm not sure what he hit, or if it's just from years of abuse, but the mount on the truck broke. He had to drag it down to the shop in reverse and go buy a new mount. Never seen that before.

Also, salesman out on a testdrive in a BMW X5. Wanted to show the customers it's off-road capability. Ditched it! Luckily there was a Chevy around (Mine) to go pull it's $60,000 butt out!

Interesting day.

SlimJim,
Are you sure you didn't get that big snowblower and try to gobble that truck up :) but stopped when the blade came off!

;)

Just kidding, How have you been?

Makes you want to add some stuff to your emergency kit, or make one if you don't already have one!!

Keep some cargo straps and a digging bar with you, never know when you'll need them!!

Also not mine...thank god! A customer brought this one into the welding shop where I work a couple of weeks back. Fairly new Western straight blade (7.5') with the pivot bolt hole torn out of the moldboard! Had to have hooked something going in reverse, we didn't see it happen, we just got to fix it. (Cut out a section of the bottom leg of the angle, fab up a replacement plate with the proper hole, vee everything out for a full penetration weld and sew it all back up.) Anyone seen or experienced anything like this before? First time I'd ever seen something like that!
