Help! Need A Plow Truck To Get A Fish House Off Long Lake Richmond.

Recommended Posts

Reel_Magic

Well lets start this off with i'm an idiot🙄.  Went fishing last Saturday afternoon/evening on Long Lake in Richmond and did pretty good.  Thought I would leave the house overnight and come back, fish a little bit and it get it Sunday morning.  Needless to say the winds wiped out all "roads" out to the house by Sunday morning and I can't make it there.  I really need someone who is willing to plow a road back out so I can get it off by Next Monday.  Willing to pay for time and effort please PM me if interested.

 

Thanks!

You may want to take a tip from another poster who was stranded on a lake last weekend  too, IMO. He ended up calling a nearby business & found out who did their plowing. Got a #, made a call,  turned out they lived only a few blocks away & soon were there to get him out.  After > 8 hours of struggling, he was finally able to get off the lake. :cool:

i was born and raised in richmond, currently live in cold spring, but for the life of me i dont know anyone with a plow right of the top of my noggin.

 

i'd suggest stopping at corky's or haffleys and ask around, or even channel marine or the gas station on 23??????????

Thanks guys, I think I will give channel marine a call and see if they know anyone.  Ill get it done one way or another.  There are two other houses near me and I imagine they are in the same predicament

There are a few guys locally that have plows and do some plowing. Casey owner at Channel Marine has a plow and a 3500 Chevy pickup he may be able to help. Another two guys I know that do  local plowing are Chuck Merten, Casey or Jeff at channel Marine should have his number and Chuck Schmitz excavateing. Good luck hope it works out.

If you know the other guys with houses contact them you all three could split the cost as Im sure they will need support also. I Assume you are out by The N islands? Another option you would have and is probably closes access is call George at Cozy corners he may be able to help you out I know he has a truck with a plow also. Morris Grossinger locally has a skid steer with a blower and he also does snow removal not sure if he would be willing to take a chance on the ice with it. Hopefully some of these options work for you sure one of them will.

MC's Lawn and Landscaping does our commercial properties in the St. Cloud area, but he's from the Richmond area and I know he plows a few drives on Elkview Cir.  Maybe try him out??

Took a drive past the chain. Looks pretty barren. Seen one truck come off Becker. One house left on horseshoe and one on cedar island. Was 1 vehicle, Toyota type on horseshoe. Road didn't look very good out there. Road out on cedar island looked good front hwy 22.

      Let’s hear about your 2020 projects up at the lake. At my daughter’s request, I am going to rebuild the outhouse to “higher standards.” What do you plan to do?

      FYI:  Few hours ago an ATV went thru narrows under bridge between North n South Center.  Zero - no injury’s n ATV out of water.   Odd to see fire crew wrap Caution tape around THIN ICE signs been there long time. Fun. Ok but come on man......THINK!   Do a lil recon n homework before heading out...each time. Might save yer life. Water is Dang COLD under that ice. Relax - have fun - be safe.   keep on Rocken!   T

      I’d go as high of amperage you can afford and can get in a certain bank. 15 should suit you great. I got a 2 bank 12amp last spring but really wish I would have went with the 15 for a more faster recharge time between trips.

      Getting a MinnKota Precision charger for my new boat, a 1875 Pro Guide. It will have a 24 volt Ulterra on the bow and 24 volt Vantage on the stern. The batteries are group 31 AGMs. I've always had 10 amp per bank chargers in the past. I will be spending more time on the water with this boat so draining the batteries down more. Is the 15 amp per bank better, worse or no difference? I am leaning towards the 15 amp for quicker charging. Getting a 3 bank so the starting battery will be topped off also.

      Stopped by the dealership yesterday. The Helis 10 or 12 will fit but only if the gimbal mount is attached directly to the folding section. Any mount will make it to tall. I guess I'll be taking the graph off, not to big a deal.

      I am from Iowa we are planning a trip up to Big Trout Lake, I was wondering about the ice conditions (snow, slush, and thickness) any info would be appreciated.

      Can I cut the quick connect from the vexilar charger and then cut alligator clips off my lithium charger and switch them with no problems? I know there would be no issue with the alligators on the vex charger. Curious about the lithium with quick connect. The new 20 has the quick connect.
