Just an Old Man
All your talk about snow and its snowing again in Butte. Shut up for a while.
I pulled the snow off my roof today just as a precaution, after the last wind storm the 17year old roof sprang a couple of leaks & was shedualed to be replaced this week .The ones with a poly plow blade & offset handle are good. Mine have everything but the offset handle; except for the fact that I have to bend a little more, I have no complaints & they have worn well. Snow doesn't stick to poly scoop very often. I WILL own a snow blower before next winter! 4" of snow & up gets a blow job. Aluminum scoop shovels work good also when digging through drifts is required; I spray the blade surface before I start. Tomorrow I'm getting my roof cleared - way too much weight up there with the drifts. It will be a prudent expenditure and I sure as shit ain't getting on the roof, even if the landing after I slide off would be softer, lol.
I had the same problem. Parts of my road is on the side of a slight hill so I could only blade it one direction; downhill. The berm would get up to a certain height and then my road got narrower to the point the UPS truck wouldn't come up.Sg, with my 1,100' driveway it is either plow or perish! I start out in the fall with around 20+' of width but even with two 6' blades on my tractor eventually the berms are so high that the road narrows down to about 7-8'. At that point I call in the big boys with a tracked snow plow and they open the road up again to almost the original width. With heavy snow forecast in the next few days I will probably have a luge track again and need some help turning it back into a road.
