They guy tried the bucket thing and only mad it worse. I'm pretty sure the green one hit the SUV. Only thing I can think is that the tires were bald. I'm seriously starting to think about looking for a plow for the 90 then offering the condo association a deal on plowing the streets since the property manager was pissed with the plow company.

or even an old CJ/YJ with a plow already installed and a rusty body... I've seen them for $500-800. I would do this if I could have another vehicle in a heartbeat.

Yeah, from skidding, the tires can get pretty smooth. And on packed snow, that could be hard to manuver. The thing that is puzzling is how they got that machine all they way to the side. Should have opened a strip down the middle and then farmed snow off each side of it.

I wouldn't get a plow for the 90 - do like hillstrubl said get a beater rig instead.

I drove by the were they have it parked yesterday morning while dumping my trash in the dumpster and yep the tires are bald. Might have to look into the beater with a plow.
