Vingino's Happy New Year to all!!! I finally logged onto the site. I am a wannabe newbie who has wanted to push snow forever. I caught a post awhile back against plowing with the IFS GM pick-ups. I own an '88 GMC half ton, rebuilt trans, rust free frame, strong running 350 engine. Should I even think about plowing residential driveways and perhaps small parking lots, or save my money for a more stout capable vehicle? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, I hope this shows up where it's supposed to.

My savings for my 2nd truck were slightly dpleted on the first snow this year when my truck started making horrible noises in 4wd, I now intimately know what a transfer case and front differential are AND cost!

Looking forward to getting to know you all here!

Sure i will post some pictures but first i have to find the right place to post them.
I will post 2 of the equipment that i am working with. Maybe someone can tell me where to post more, i hope to find the right place soon.

Greetings Peter

btw: sorry if my english isn't perfect
Welcome to LTS, rather ironic, as Chuck was just saying he didn't think there were any members from Europe.

You are very fortunate to live there, I was lucky enough to visit there back in '88 and loved it. Unfortunately, it was summertime.

PS Your English is just fine.

Landgreen Welcome!. Great pictures. Quite the backdrop. Keep posting them if you have more. Will be interested in hearing more about snow removal in your part of the world.

BWhite Welcome ! Great to have another snowy part of the worlds perspective about Plowing !

Pelican Just take a look at the index page you find by clicking the logo in the upper left corner of each page. There you'll see a listing of forums, just choose the one that your pictures best fit, in this case "Plowing with Equipment" would probably be best. When in doubt, post in "Snowplowing Discussions" and we can move it if necessary.

That's an interesting machine, how about starting a thread in "Plowing With Equipment" about it?

Chuck Smith This site is made up of various Discussion Forums. Each Forum is it's own "Topic".

For instance, this "Thread" (or conversation as you called it) is in the "Snowplowing Discussion Forum" (consider each Forum as a catagory, or topic).

Threads are made up of posts (replies) which are responses to what the original poster wrote in the first post of the thread.

Eventually, the posts add up on a particular thread, and additional pages are added to the thread, as the discussion continues.

Hope it helps... Welcome aboard.

confused

First off you all have a really great site here! lots of good info. Im very computer stupid so a little help would be great. please inform me of the difference between threads, pages, posts, replys. I start reading one conversation and keep getting lost in all the posts. I keep reading though cuz most of it's pretty helpfull, but I usually forget what I was looking for in the first place. Thanks for the great welcome to the site.

Thanks for making me feel welcome

Hello to all the members,

I just wanted to thank all of you for being so welcoming to this site. I just found out about your site and I think it is great and very helpful especially, for me because this is my first year plowing with my company and I can use all the great advice and experience other contractors have had in snow and ice managment.

Your site is very professional and gives great advise and I really like that. I was at another site, I think it was Snow Plow Forums or something like that and your blows it away.

I just wanted to say thanks for making me feel welcome and for all the great advise.

Mike

Chuck Smith I just wanted to add that it is a big help to those trying to help you if you list your location in your profile. I know MANY of you do not list one. We don't need a street address and a zip code!

Just what State you are in will do. IF you want to list a city, that is fine too.

thanks for welcome

I am a new member and have to say that this site is the best thing I bumped into so far on the world wide web. I got the link on Chucks chevy truck page. I spent three weeks trying to contact someone with the right mounts for my 88 chevy. Jerre was the first one that gave me accurate and useful information. I ended up selling the fisher plow that I had as a complete ford unit and made $600. with that money I should be able to buy something for my chevy. Once again thanks for the welcome and the help from the senior members.
