Hey Pat, is that a Polaris, or CanAm?  Did you buy the plow from the dealer, or install it yourself?  Do you use a winch to operate the plow?

 

I'm considering replacing my 20-year-old Yamaha 4-wheeler and plow.  We just got enough snow, in Anchorage, to plow for the first time this winter.

Hey Ken, it's the Can-Am 850 Max Xt with the flex plow. I had the dealer install the plow and yes it operates using the winch. It pushes like crazy, makes the chore of snow removal fun! :thumbsup:

 

Edit...I think I just read that Can-Am reduced their pricing on the Outlander line. Probably less money now vs 2018! :dopeslap:

Hiding under the bed in the spare room.  We have both spent some time petting and hanging out.  He will get use to us in a bit.

HA.  I guess that is why I never see those vehicles at a public gas station.  I never really thought about where those fuel up at.  Interesting.

Ahhhh, that tank.  I was thinking about the other tank.    I thought they got filled with water from the hydrants.   HA!

 After or during a fire, yes. :thumbsup: Some of the older pumpers will leak a little water and on your daily pump checks you'll lose some. After a day or two if not checked, you could be down fifty gallons. I always top it off during truck checks. ;)

Tewks, do y'all have to repack those pumps very often? I worked around water pumps in the mines. They were fine if used often, but if they sat a while the seals would shrink. 

 

But that was decades ago too!

They go to the dealer once a year for pump testing and maintenance. Which I believe the big part of it is basically an oil change.

 

All but one of the engines have PUC Pumps which stands for Pierce Ultimate Configuration  So, no repacking like the old setups. I'd be lying if I pretended to know a lot about them. I was told by one of the Pierce mechanics that if you run the PUC pump low on oil it's about a 50 thousand dollar repair bill! :eek:

 

We do test all the hose on the trucks once a year. Basically you over pressurize the lines and if they burst you junk it. If not, back in service it goes. Hmm, wait a minute...:ohboy:
