Default That time of year already

Just assembled the first two for the upcoming season (I work in Assembly at a Lowe'* store). Went from grills to snowblowers in the same day lol.

you can adjust alot of them for that, but why wouldnt you put a plow on your dodge? remote start it go out and sit in the warm cab and out of the wind and snow. the only thing you have to worry about is spilling your coffee. i hate snow blowers. unfortunately thats all that will take care of the big drift that ends up in front of my garage all the time.

See the black brackets on the side? They're for adjusting the height of the pickup impellers. Drop them down a little and you are good

I have an old one that runs, I keep thinking of putting little mower wheels on the front of it. The tabs just bury themselves in the gravel.

My Dodge dually is two wheel drive and 17 years old. It doesn't do well in snow and I treat it with TLC. It main duties are pulling my 8600Lb boat and hauling wood out of the forest. Both summer activities.

sometimes you have to angle the tabs up in the front so it doesnt dig in.

a mid 90'* cummins dodge would be the only dodge i would buy, age dont mean much. 2wd might be a problem though. not many 2wd dualies around here. it always seems no matter what your pulling when you get there its gravel or a field or something. i would think it would be even more important there with all the hills i suppose boat launches are usually paved

It made me laugh when i moved here last winter, there was only about 3 inches of snow on the ground and my neighbors were using their snowblowers. meanwhile i shoveled my drive way in like 2 minutes and one day carl even swept the snow away cuz it was so light.
