I wish I had more input on where my tax dollars went. This is the type of shit I want to be paying for!

Hi this is PA, we'd like to buy several thousand of those. Send invoice to PA Legislature, Harrisburg PA.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a grader invention.

Meanwhile my mailbox is taken out every year with the local snowplow.

Why isn’t that on every plow in the midwest!

I bet it's easy to tell who the snow plow drivers don't like.

That is a road grader not a snow plow

As someone from Hawaii I really don’t understand.

They need this in every New England city

I feel like this wouldn't be all that hard to modify for a regular snow plowing truck.

As a canadian, why the fuck aren't all snow plows like this?
14 Feb 2018 09:34 - +62
Yeah, because they have actual plows instead of a plow blade mounted on the front of a pickup truck.

They don't ever seem to use this though source: from Alaska

Please send one - or ten - to Ottawa. Every time they plow, I have to clear 3 feet of snow just to be able to walk out to the road.

They sometimes use graders out here in Colorado too.

My dad used to operate those for the city of Anchorage.

Not here in South Anchorage.

I've had a couple of plow drivers angle the blade away when they saw me out shoveling. Of course, other times I had to run for my life since the bastard was hauling along at what seemed like 50 mph and would have buried me 'till spring.

Those blades are great, for small amounts of snow, but any significant amount of snow, it just goes over it, leaving a fun ice berm to shovel out. Trust me, I'm from CA. No, not that part, the part with mountains and snow.

That's so considerate. Where I'm from the snow plows will put drifts in front of driveways or on fire hydrants. Fun fact: a sheared off fire hydrant will not release any water.

Alaskan here for over 20 years- they are able to do this, but in my experience they usually don't. Mailboxes are also fair game.

He’s doing a grade job.
14 Feb 2018 09:24 - +6
Yeah, but in Ohio one driver can plow all night long.
14 Feb 2018 12:59 - +6
Thats a grader, not a snow plow

i live in minnesota. i want this more than i want to breathe.
14 Feb 2018 09:29 - +5
Now that is courteous!
