6.4's like big foot with snow shoes!
Here in Canada were getting a good snow fall, so its the typical every car with summer tires is stuck, the idiot who thinks 80km is fine to do around a turn into a ditch kind of day. Today my buddy calls and asked if I could give him a hand getting his tractor back into the barn. POS Deer wouldn't start out in the cold and needed a jump start and to pull his 7.3 out.
I get their and we lock the hubs on the beast to let all 4 BFGs pull. We start driving down his cut line in about a foot of snow, no problem at all. We pass his 7.3 where it was stuck in a snow drift in one of his fields and the tractor is now almost within sight. Going between two of his fields he has a little dip, probably 2 feet or so about 30 feet long. I knew it was coming so I started to build momentum, hoping to push through. The front end just dropped right off and snow came over the hood. The snow was so deep I pushed about a foot of snow up onto my hood. Needless to say once the truck dropped so did the skinny pedal. All I have to say is this truck is a monster in the snow, its better off then big foot with snow shoes on. Some how the beast kept pushing till we got out. Sorry no pics but dam shes a monster!
One question, my check air filter light came on. Air box was packed with snow, so I beat what I could off and re installed. Started driving home and got a PO 2002 code and a PO 0000 code. I figure its something to do with the snow in the intake but just checking.
