    Pushin snow...

    i am talking about a one ton pickup with 8 foot plow not fitting. i many areas of nu yawk, it is not uncommon to see cars and trucks with mirrors ripped off or worse because the fire trucks and garbage trucks can not fit down the street. so they make room by wiping the sides off the cars parked on both sides of the street. here in my town, many roads are only 14 foot wide. if someone illegally parks on the road you can not pass with anything larger than a pickup.......WITHOUT a plow on it

    Dodge Bighorn

    my 88 is sitting at 495,000. same way too. the 7.3 still purrs like a swiss army knife. but the driver side rocker and 6 inches of the floor rotted out and fell off. i have a new cab to drop on it in once it warms up. the farm i grew up on still runs a mid 70's dodge grain body with a 190 cummins and 10 speed trans. not sure what it is, but it has the side folding hoods and wing fenders to access the engine. looks like the Air Force tanker.

    i have been a lot of places where a regular plow truck can just barely get down streets, let alone a truck with a wing plow on it.

    Mack DM 800 twin stick for sale

    funny looking truck. heavy single drive axle with a small tire tag axle. that looks like a home made fuel tank, not a wet line tank. driver side has battery box where fuel tank should be, passenger side has what looks like air tank for air starter where fuel tank should be

    also called a crash truck. the ones we built had arrow boards on the back frame under a 10 ton block of concrete or steel plate to bring total weight up to 25,000 lbs, and a Big folding crash attenuator mounted on the back.

    a friend of mine was almost killed in Maryland about 8 years ago on a night paving job when a drunk clipped him as he was stepping out of his truck to clean the spreader plate after dumping. he ended up loosing his business and spent 7 years learning to walk again after the 11 re-constructive surgeries.10 years ago we had a drunk drive into the back of a dump truck on one of the night jobs while the driver was between the tailgate and body cleaning the gate chutes killing the driver.. 12 years ago we had an inspector that constantly knelt down to do whatever it was he did. he was warned many many times not to. well, the last time he did it was rite behind a 28,000 lb Cat 564 roller. the operator did not see him and flattened him into the roadway killing him instantly. the worst part is the operator was weeks away from retiring, and that accident landed him in a mental ward. he could not handle the fact he killed someone after having a 45 year accident free record. i also was in 5 attenuator trucks that got totaled after drunks or idiots ran into them because the "did not see it" i stopped working nights after the last attenuator truck wreck 11 years ago

    not sure, but nothing is there any more. the whole site is tore up like they are doing decontamination remediation like they did alongside the site.

    i was up past Devino's in october, and everything is gone. all the equipment, trucks, and buildings. the old Tully B81 dump and Terex dozer are gone too. word is everything went to the crusher for scrap.

    barrier wall is a target to those idiots, not a deterrent. the latest game is to see if you can hit the barrier just rite to flip the suv on it's roof, or if you can drive up the interchange ramp and perfectly balance whatever you are driving on top of the wall.

    here in Nu Yawk City South, i swear it is a competition to see how many cones/barrels one asterisk can hit. i can put out 1 mile of cones and barrels, loop around, and have to reset just about every one. i once asked a trooper if i could put out steel or concrete cones, and he told me there were not enough wreckers in the state to remove the damaged cars from idiots hitting them on purpose
