I actually feel a bit sorry for that M1009. That plow was not matched very well with that vehicle. That would be about useless here in Pennsylvania plowing snow in tight areas. It may be the picture but it looks like 8 ft of over hang out the front. I would not be able to drive on the roads unless it was in 4WD. Does that come with a counter weight? If not it needs one. WOW what a PLOW. Death sentence for that vehicle.Our CUCV here in Nevada. Still working hard!
I posted the picture of the RED sailboat light in case you were confused. Have some imagination and a lack some mechanical knowledge and I can see the sailboat in the red sea. Red light above the left turn indicator.Driver just called me. I sent him to Reading to pick up some steel. He called and said a RED sailboat light is lit. I said really" A sailboat" he said yes in a RED area. I laughed. He said I checked the oil it was good. I said relax. Continue on your way. If you wiggle the ignition switch at times you can get the RED sailboat to light up. Over heat light/hi temperature. I told him to wiggle the ignition switch he shut it off. I said now start it. He did and the sailboat sailed away. That ended that. Funny how young guys are so confused about things. Even now all new trucks have full instrumentation as standard equipment. Funny moment. The RED light should light each time you start the truck during the initial crank. If NOT you should look into it. Have a Great Day.
That's why you keep a roll of duck tape in every tool box.
Be easy on him Rick, I'm sure he has a great reason it broke. I deal with the same thing almost weekly. If it dont belong to them they don't care.Already being a CUCV organ donor. Not worth the effort to repair. Scrap it. It is not worth fixing. Broken transmission, bent frame, broken axle, transfer case, And I am sure it will not stop there. If it was a 2018 Chevrolet K3500 4 X 4 pick up it would be scrapped. Sometimes you just fold the hand and walk away. It was a great plow truck. Was being the key word. Maybe the driver was overcome with heat. It was a very hot humid day. I did not talk to him yet. I want to get myself together before that takes place. Not good to make rash decisions.
