our Suburban driving up our very snowy driveway. I know that it's technically a GMC, but it's more commonly known as a "Suburban." And yes, there was a TON of snow! Huge storm hit. Wild crazy winds, which made tons of drifts! (mostly in the night)
ATV Plowing 3 Feet of Snow: Kawasaki Prairie 400
I noticed there are a lot of videos of people plowing 2 inches of snow... So I just had to contribute. Fast forward to 4:10 if you're impatient.
2001 Kawasaki Prairie 400 (KVF400-C3)

Front tires are Swamp Lite, hope to get some for the back soon.
Yes, the front posi is wore out.
Warn Provantage 50" plow.
Cheapie winch with homemade behind-the-bumper mount.
The location: Golden Gate Canyon area near Black Hawk, Colorado. Elevation 9,240 feet.

It had a hard time pushing the snow straight but when I got to a point where I could tilt the plow, get up some speed, and push the snow to the side it had no trouble. With this amount of snow over a large area I first clear out some space on one side so I can move around and then I make two complete sweeps over the area. In the first sweep my rows go from the outside edge into the middle row with the plow tilted to the outside (counter-intuitive but it works). The second sweep goes the expected direction, from the middle row to the outer edges with the plow still tilted outward. Using this method you don't have to stop or reverse once you get in the groove. Unfortunately the camera battery ran out before I could get that far, but you get the idea.
(Viewers are advised to use the 'watch in high quality' option for this video). 'Snow' is available to buy as part of the BFI DVD 'Geoffrey Jones: The Rhythm of Film' - http://filmstore.bfi.org.uk/acatalog/info_59.html
Comprising train and track footage quickly shot just before a heavy winter's snowfall was melting, the award-winning classic that emerged from the cutting-room compresses British Rail's dedication to blizzard-battling into a thrilling eight-minute montage cut to music. Tough-as-boots workers struggling to keep the line clear are counterpointed with passengers' buffet-car comforts.
In a mere half-dozen films released between 1959 and 1975, director Geoffrey Jones revealed himself as an outstanding talent, embracing industrial filmmaking as consistent with a personal style, blending movement and sound into a joyous, rhythmic whole. Brilliantly aided by Wolfgang Suschitzky's shimmering camerawork, the Oscar-nominated 'Snow' is Jones' masterpiece. It's crisply invigorating enough to induce brief amnesia about our trains' notorious inability to cope with the white stuff - then and now. (Patrick Russell)

1976 Suburban 3/4 Ton 4x4 TRUCK Out of Storage after 15 years
http://www.TheBurban.com OFFICIAL SITE with more videos and Pictures of this Truck.
1976 GMC 4x4 Suburban 3/4 Ton out of storage after 15 years. I needed to find me a truck, and find me a truck I did, right under my own nose. We are proud to introduce this good old 76 GMC Suburban Four Wheel Drive back into civilization after 15 years in storage. It was in Wisconsin and then driven out to California to have it slowly but surely restored into a "Sleeper" crawler/pre-runner. We plan to keep it looking like a "Day 2" 1976 as much as possible but with some mean new upgrades under the it's sleeve. Currently it has 6" Block, Shock, and Leaf spring lift. Small Block 400 CID Motor with new Cam and new stroke. Edelbrock 600 Carb. turbo 350 Automatic Trans with aftermarket shift kit.
The day after I bought this Suburban for $400 as my new daily driver, I had to go test it out a little bit. It's a 1977 1/2 ton 4x4 Suburban with a Goodwrench 350, SM465 4spd manual and NP205, GM 12-bolt rear and 10-bolt front with 3.73 gears and no lockers or no posi, stock height, factory 15x8 Rally wheels and 235/75R15 balding street tires, factory tach gauge cluster, tilt column, rear a/c and heat. Almost every Silverado option except for PW or PDL or intermittent wipers. Was sort of rare being a manual transmission also.
