August 2015 Plow Update

First day of August. First plows of the month. We begin with a pair of NYSDOT Mack Granites doing what they do during the off season. Generating traffic.

The dogs days of summer may have just begun but new plows leave the lot in full battle dress. Here we see a Western Star 4700 for a destination unknown.

Compare and contrast with this next rig. The last time I photographed this truck was back in November of 2013. Little has changed on the truck with exception of a rust, “new” side boards and a semi repaired rock shield. Take a look and see what you can spot.

This Freightliner FLD from the Town of Clay, NY is sending me a military surplus vibe. As you can see from this fine gallery curated by Joe Kelly the military was a prime supplier of Clay Highway Department trucks over the years.

Plenty of cool stuff in the gallery below with more NYSDOT trucks, Town of Indian Lake and NYS Thruway Western Stars, new rig for Town of Eaton, Indian Lake again, Town of Elbridge 4700, Town of Scribe Volvo, and a new Western Star 4700 for Town of Ovid.
