^ that's the kinda stuff I daydream design in my head all the time.
To do any serious plowing you need at least a 1 ton (some guys go bigger) with the diesel, and even then those guys burn out their trannies and out a lot of wear on those beast engines.
Ive got a cool rig that has potential... I've been thinking a lot about some more work training and all that. Can't do the roofing anymore. Killing my body everyday, and getting paid peanuts. Thinking about becoming a heavy duty equipment tech. Could work either at the waterfront in town (got an in through family) or up north in shifts. Pays more than six figures (sometimes a lot more) easily once things get going. Stay in town and I can take time off whenever I want! Could work anywhere... and I already got this big bus. Seats 20, huge cargo area, '99 E450 7.3L Power Stroke diesel. So much potential... Not as good as a big 4x4, real crappy ground clearance, but chains and snows and it'll drive through a lot! Could just powder chase in the interior all winter!
