Keep on plowing. After all these years of running this site that is the first time I’ve titled a post with those words. Hard to believe. With two consecutive weekends of heavy snow I would say it’s about time to look at some of the equipment that is so common place this time of year.
We’ll start out with this Western Star 4900 from the Town of Manlius. This was taken the same morning the Toro Groundmaster fell through the ice. Deep snow and bitter cold. What a combo!
This year it seems that if you don’t plan ahead and stack the snow as high as you can you’re going to have problems with space later on. Here a John Deere 624E is clearing on the aisles of a local Life Storage. Ironic that a Cat dealership is on both sides of this property?
As I might have mentioned before I usually prefer my wife to drive during this winter. It’s not that I don’t like to drive in the snow but it’s really the only way to take a photo and avoid having a head on collision with a plow. My safety was rewarded with a shot one my favorite trucks, this International 2574 of the ‘Cuse DPW.
And, in order of apperance in the gallery below, City of Watertown, NY International Workstar, Village of Manlius, NY International 2674, Onondaga County DOT Frightliner M2 112V, City of Syracuse International 7600, A pair of Cat front loaders, a rear shot of the Cuse 7600 and a collection of NYSDOT Macks.
