It was a cold spring. You know, the kind we have here in Northwestern Wisconsin, where warm days melt just enough for it to freeze solid at night.
The job was to plow an old logging trail to recover a Dodge truck the sheriff's department had found the night before. Armed with a WESTERN 8' PRO PLOW on our F-350 4x4 diesel, we began the push.
It started easy, as the logging road was wide at the neck where it met the primary road, but this was short lived. Boom! We felt the bump of a jackpine that was laying under the snow. This would be the first of many as we realized this would be a tough fight. We pulled back and continued to cut and push, cut and push, cut and push.
It was a battle we fought into the night until we finally got to the truck. We couldn't believe how well our old WESTERN plow performed on the road, bucking logs all the way so that we could tow the pickup out from its resting place.
When we finally built the road, we had the ability to drive our C6500 rollback down the road to pickup the truck.
