Plow Round Up

Time to enjoy an old standard of Daily Diesel Dose in which we just look at a random collection of snow fighting rigs.

This first truck is a 4×4 unit with Henderson equipment. I spotted this truck behind United Radio where it was waiting for, you guessed it, a radio system. Typically the City of Syracuse and Onondaga County send their equipment to location. Based on color of the cab I lean toward the county for this truck but then again the city has been receiving a bunch of new equipment recently so you might as well flip a coin….and then you could still be wrong.

International Workstar 4x4

Heading home from the Tracey Road Equipment open house I came across this beast wearing Henderson door stickers. I guess the Henderson reps thought better of bringing a Mack product to a Freightliner/Western Star dealer? Cool unit either way with what appears to be some sort of roll-off system.

Returning from picking pumpkins with the wife we passed by the Onondaga County Marcellus Maintenance garage. A large collection of seemingly older plow blades were outside for all to see so I made sure to grab a photo. In my mind I imagined these blades being hooked to a Walter busting drifts in the hills that surround the area. I doubted that there were any trucks mighty enough left in the fleet to handle these blades but was told that a pair of AWD Paystars have been modified for the V’s when nature calls. Good enough for me!

    On the V plows, that is the later Frink insignia, maybe some of the last ones made?
