Just a Reminder

We all know I enjoy taking shots of snowplows but I just realized something that I would like to share. I like taking shots of snowplows in summer! Not winter. The trucks look better. The lighting is better. Everything is better. Fast forward two months from this date and you won’t find this new truck for the Town of Chenango looking this clean. Or maybe you will. I’m not sure on their maintenance practices.

One thing is for sure, I won’t find lighting like this come February. No identify marks for the future owner of this truck but take note of the DEF tank. Engine choices could be the International N9 or N1o. The Cummins ISB 6.7 is a new option available on the WorkStar so I don’t believe this rig has one under the hood.

Ah, look at this cold mess. Back in February I traveled to Watertown for business. I picked a great day as a heavy snow storm covered the entire stretch of I-81 with the usual whiteouts around Pulaski and Adams, NY. Placing my camera in a hands free device I recorded a few select moments of my journey. This video is best enjoyed while sitting in front of a fire.

The randoms below include an OCDOT 2674, Town of Cicero, NY Mack at the tire shop, different angles from of the two new rigs from above and of Town of Norway Western Star that had a bad day.
