Hit the Lights

I’m about ready to call it regarding the 2013-2014 plow hunting season. Oh, I know Mother Nature has other things in mind but I think we’ve all had enough. If the dealer lots and repair shops around town are any indication the trucks feel the same way. You can tell it’s been a long winter when I am the one looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. Did I make this same speech last year? Who knows. Time to finish strong.

Tom sends in a pic of a 1988 FWD of the Orangetown, NY fleet. Purpose built to get the job done.

Representing the latest generation of snow plows I bring you this Western Star 4800 for the Town of Pompey, NY.  When we last saw this truck it was just a bare frame and cab. Hopefully it will have to wait a few months before receiving a true test of abilities.


The Hi-Way DO-AL is a strange but interesting looking body.


Continuing the trend of Western Stars replacing every used plow truck here is the newest rig to join the Village of Minoa’s DPW fleet. A 4700SF. Possibly one of two trucks on the way.

In the gallery below we have more angles of the Minoa truck, a 4700 from the Town of Guilford, a NYSDOT Mack Granite, more coverage of the Pompey Truck and a Sterling from the Town of Onondaga.

Tomorrow the plow action continues for Autocar Mondays!
