I made some huge snow piles with the loader and the lot pusher. I think we will have snow up till Memorial day. Cleaning up piles of snow with a 3 yard bucket is like trying to empty a box car of salt with a teaspoon. Mindless, monotonous work. But it pays well. And with a heated cab it is nice also. Take Care. I think I had enough snow for now. Today looks like a melt day. That brings a different mess to deal with. Be Safe.
This is after Mondays 6" snow. The piles are higher than my truck. Today brought 60* weather and a massive melt is under way.
The CUCV M1008 spreader truck has a broken main shaft in the transmission. It would go in gear but no power was transmitted thru the transfer case. I removed the transfer case and started the truck. When I put it in gear I could spin the out put shaft in reverse. When I placed it in park it would grind like when you put a vehicle in park while moving. I have done that a few times. I'm sure we all have. I remember one of the drivers driving the M1009 plow tuck while plowing and hearing a strange sound. He came back and said he smelled something hot. The starter was still engaged and running for about 1/2 and hour. Clueless. It was in need of a starter after that. Take Care. Be Safe.
