If you are going to have to move snow, that sure looks like the comfortable way to do it!
You would think so.... and that was my hope when we bought it....

But nope!


The cab is COLD. It has a heater, but it is way under powered.

The snow blower..... being a snow blower, often needs to be unclogged. So yep, crawling over everything, cleaning out the blower....getting back in....

In short.... NOT my kind of snow removal.

As a result... Kid 3 is the only one doing snow removal.

Sigh

I need to figure out how to work around this....

New heater in the cab? Or maybe it needs a tune up?
Unclogging, well that wouldn't be fun. Maybe take less at a time? Of course that works only after the first pass.

The huge truck with fancy plow...THAT was a cushy way to remove snow.

Heat, radio, comfy bench seat.... just driving....

Only issue i had was the clutch was stiff... and after 2 hours of forwards, reverse, forwards, reverse... my bum knee would start to ache and then stiffen up....
