My truck ran 12 hours straight plowing and hopping between jobs yesterday, 9 of those hours were me, other 3 was a buddy doing one of his commercial lots so I was still making money not even in the truck. I got up this morning and plowed for another 3 hours before work. Holy shit, Im pretty proud of my rusty chevy truck.

*edit - oh and I forgot I got stuck twice yesterday cause of all the snow :)

Leaving ridges is stupid. Pushing snow onto a vacant area is not but cops will be cops.

Nope no link, 30 years plowing. Plus family member's in the business in other states.
I plowed my friends in Walled Lake, the first time the Cop sat in the road watching me. My friend called and asked why. Cop was waiting for me to enter the lane of traffic to ticket me. I then made sure I knew the local laws.
My point is the pushers of snow need to learn to plow. And if I a mere woman can do it right I'm sure the guys can.
Just to stir, did you know, piling snow at road by end of driveway is also illegal if it blocks drivers view. And nope no links.

So lets say a driveway is 15 feet long and a garage door at the top of it. Wtf are you supposed to do with the snow. You,re a moron. Theres no law against putting it on the easment (in fact thats where it is supposed to go) and the snow across the street laws are local not state. Of the 80 drives my trucks plow each storm about 50 get pushed across the street. Havent gotten a ticket in 15 years ive been doing it. Just cranky neighbors who think the snow is going to hurt their lawn or some shit.

it may or may not be a law in this state I'm not 100% sure, but in Northern Michigan its pretty much the golden rule of plowing, you don't push across the street.

exactly the one I bought, you will seriously LOVE it. I had a older varna with a 16" bar and the fucker was so hard to pull over and get started. One day I said screw this after trying to start it for over an hour and went to Lowes to buy a new one. Like I said best investment ive ever made.
