Last weekend I had to replace some of the mounting bolts for my Geo Tracker-mounted snowplow. I had abused the plow big-time by pushing wet, heavy snowdrifts that were four times taller than my blade. And I had to hit the drifts with just the left edge of the blade due to the area I was plowing. Oh, and I had to hit 'em going quite fast. Result: A couple of bent mounting bolts.
If that's all the damage that happens, I'm happy. Tough plow. And I was able to finish plowing with no interruption.
Now they're telling us we're getting another 4-6 inches of snow on Monday. I'm ready.
