Good question. I didn't get that one. I have all the customers I need. I constantly have to turn people down who want to get plowed because I can't do anymore. Advertisement is all I need!:rolleyes:

They should be lettered to show that you care and have some kind of passion for what you do.

I pass so many trucks everyday with equipment and you have no idea who they are.

I think not having your truck lettered, shows that you could really care less about a professional presentation.

There are also legal requirements to it in NY, but that doesn't apply to everyone.

Just my $0.02

Im going to have to disagree with that. My grandfather started his business when he was 25years old and ran it until he was 65, then passed it onto my uncle (which still runs now). Out of an 8 truck fleet not one truck was lettered and they both showed damn good passion about what they did and professional presentation was obviously top of their list seeing as they had (and still have) the contracts with 4 out of 5 builders in town and with the municple buildings. Just about every house built in my town since 1975 was/still is landscaped and maintained by their business.

Not trying to start anything, just trying to prove that there are people with unlettered equipment that take serious pride in their work. I think doing quality work for people to see presents a more professional image than jazzy equipment. Half of the lettering i see around here is just gawdy and obnoxious anyways.:alien: ...................................

I agree with you there...

My point is.. When I pass a lettered truck on the road I can usually remember it and pick it out when I see it again. I pass 50+ landscapers/ plowing contractors every day, and I don't know who they are.. It's like they don't want anyone to know:confused:

I see to a point, that if your work vehicle is your only vehicle; lettering may not be an appealing option to you.

Yes, its a DOT requirement. Although, most people could care less about the law. And most don't care enough, to find out if they are required to have one.

We have company name, city/state, and DOT # on all of our trucks. DOT # on all of our landscape trailers.

I think it should be an across the board requirement. No exceptions, but see if it ever goes my way:dizzy:

I cant see the whole pic but from looking at it, wouldn't it be better strating at the building and working away from it?

corkireland
11-14-2006, 05:54 PM
Well since thats the back of the another building, not our lot, I'm putting it towards that area, and towards the front of the building where we have a birm and city dich.

I do have down pressure, but it wasn't on in that picture, but since I didn't have enough of the green stuff to upgrade the plow to a larger one, and we had a plow from my old truck, (99 sonoma) its only an mt 80, straight forward it clears both sides by 2 inches. angled all the way and it is short by an inch, but I only do two commericial lots, I do 45 residential driveways and 4 family drives. so the shorter blade has not been a problem. If we have a good winter, and I mean more than the four real events we had last year, I'll look at upgrading to a plow that I can run later on a three quarter ton. This truck was simply a deal I couldn't pass up last year. I got a 9000 dollar trade on the sonoma with close to 79000 miles on it and this had only 30000 used to drive to and from work. The guy just wanted to upgrade to a the newer model. (Business write off for him and taxes, he also bought two brand new monte carlos for him and his wife). So the dealer gave us agreat deal, especielly as a big friend of my families. I figure I'll have enough made to upgrade to a three quarter ton in about 2 to three years.

Also thats our flooring store, so I had to work on one hafl at a time cuz my dad didn't want customers getting stuck that day. It was a 6 inch storm during the day. and we had cars on the second part closest the picture. I cleared that part seen up the curb of the other building and then came back and cleared closer

Yes! I had an 8' 6" EZ-V that I bought used and I Hit something and folded it last year so I just bought the XtremeV blade, "T" frame, angle rams, and mounted it to the existing MM frame and Hyd unit. Worked out well cant wait to use it.:bluebounc :bluebounc

You used the old Hyd unit?
Just a tip, and opinion but.

I have to say we just traded in one of our 8' straight and picked up our 8.6 extreme V ms. And well the new hyd unit is so much faster. you might want to look into them.

Adair350
11-16-2006, 09:26 PM
Thanks for the tip. For a few dollars more I could have bought the whole MM2 set up with the new hyd unit. But I already had the existing MM1 and Hyd & it wasn't worth anything so I just decided to get the new blade to complete the unit.:cool:

I cant wait to get mine mounted it goes in to the shop this tuesday!!!!payup

In regards to lettering, I agree it looks a lot more professional, but the company I work for deals directly with a property manager who takes bids on dozens of properties. He has such a good name with them that he never needs to advertise. Hes always had work so there was really no point. Aside from that theres zoning laws in our town (or something like that) that prohibits storing commercial equipment in residential areas that have advertisements on them. (again I dont know exactly how its worded) So it just looks like he owns 7 trucks:cool: But otherwise I agree that people should letter their trucks at least with magnetic advertisements (which is what I will eventually do)

It is AWD. Better in the snow and ice. And it's really no different than plowing with a 1500 Sierra, it just has a nicer front clip on it. I don't believe it is any lower.

I'd rather have two decent work trucks with plows instead of one of those nice trucks and a plow, but like POPO said, more power to him. I hope it works well. There are some pics on here somewhere of H2's and Escalades with plows, so I'd say a Denali isn't as bad.

Just a couple of silly reasons for not going with a diesel... not real easy to get diesel fuel near home, not fond of the sound of diesel engines or the smell. Spent years driving Motor Coaches and wanted to get away for diesels. Love the sound of a V8 and this baby screams!:D I get about 10 mpg.

You guys got some awesome rigs!! But they are a bit out of my price range. I just plow for the fun of it and only have to do my driveway and a few in the neighborhood. I love this old Blazer because it heavier that a Jeep or a S-10 but has a great turning radius for those tight driveways!
I've got one of those old Western straight blades on it and I did a complete resto on the plow but hey!....I still don't have big bucks in it and they are super easy to work on!!
Someday I would like to move up to a V-plow. I used one once and it does kind of spoil you!!!
No snow here in north east WI but we usually always have a white X-mas! :drinkup:

Ya I love the Komatsu, was a little hesitant at first because no one around here has a komatsu or has even really heard of them but the rep flew down at set everything up at the dealership, Than shipped it from the factory all the way over here in 2 days. No screwing around with these guys! It's all joystick control, only pedal is the gas pedal, So slick over the foot controls but the blizzard has it's own little joystick so now you got 3 joysticks and it' kind of hard running all three at once. I would say the skid plows at the same speed as a truck. Some people say they are way quicker but I only use it on my LARGE lots so he doing 16 km/h down, where as I'm doing 50 km/h down but than he just spins around where as I got to do 50 going back. Defentally hope we get some snow this year though although I don't really care because 9 out of 12 of my properties are on contract so it doesn't really matter. Just hope I can keep putting my new spreader to work thought. Made enough last week that half of it has payed back now so, LET IT SNOW but only 1-2" wesport

You know a like two years ago I noticed a small s-10 type truck with a v-plow... I figured maybe it was a new model... but I only noticed the one... Looked like it would be great for driveways...

why should they be lettered

In NJ it is against the law to plow for hire without commercial plates and trucks with commercial plates are required to be lettered with at least company name and Location. Phone # is not required.

Sweet tractor set up. What brand of plow is on it?

Blade is a Leon grader blade, no trip, just skids to keep the blade height.
Can apply enough down pressure to lift the front wheels
and strip packed snow and ice from asphalt. It also has float so the blade weight is the only weight applied.

With all the slack time and nice weather here we are in the process of adding 30" powered wings to each side. This will help with spillage.

Down fall of this blade if I can find one, it can move and or remove just about anything, loose asphalt, curbs, parking blocks etc...

Being a owner operator I am the only driver, I would not put this blade in the hands of an employee or sub as I would be worried about the amount of damage this unit could inflict on non move-able objects.

The blade came with the M 9000 Kubota, was used lightly to groom a horse track here in Ontario. Given a choice I would have rather had a "STORM" blade with trip etc...

Will run this until I can trade up when funds allow....

As for plowing with 4x4 Tractors, it really is the way to go if you have large enough clients to justify the large outlay
to buy outright.

I rebuilt the pump motor and the control valves. All new hoses too. I still have to fix a few things. It's just an old "low buck" plow truck. All we need now is a whole bunch of snow!!!:nod:

Got any weight in that bed? I'd throw at least 600 lbs. back there.

No I dont have any weight it. It is all stock, no cranks to the torsion bars or anything. My truck has the normal chevy nose dive to it, so it looks worse with the plow on. I may crank the torsions a few turns(2-4)

Forget the T-bars, rule #1 says you need proper ballast. Save the life of your front suspension and get at least 500 lbs. back there ASAP!

The lift on the truck is a 3inch spring lift. It is pretty easy seeing the blade guides, although it is a tall truck. Those are the stock tires so it looks a little goofy until spring comes around again. Here it is in the spring time.

real nice rig! queation, is there a reason why you with a 3" lift than a 4'' lift. i wouldn't think that there would be a big price differnce. my buddy has a 4'' lift on his 350 but it was like it when he bought it.so i don't know how much it would cost for a lift.

11.5' of SnoWay in front of Cummins power!!! I have a Western ProFlo 2 spreader but I have it off to do some rust repair on it... Just had the hideaway strobes going, my lightbar has a problem too. Just has the leveling kit (2" coil spacers on front) with 35x12.50x17 BFG M/T's on Mickey Thompson Classic II alloys. 3 TV's, backup camera, Infinity amp, tweeters, speakers, alpine speakers, 1250W Infinity sub in dual ported box w/Rockford amp, Sirius satellite radio, and lotsa MP3 cds... I don't get too bored!!!!
800 ft. lb. of torque and 300 hp with just the free mods, still has stock turbo and injectors.
Gettin ready to cut the stacks down, get it cleaned up and get it lettered...
You can see I got goin a little fast on the previous pass (in a hurry to get as much done as possible before people got there for church sunday morning) and plow started to float a little with down pressure on even.... i almost always plow with the down pressure.

Why a 3 inch lift and not 4

It was origninally supposed to only get leveled instead of lifted, but the leveling springs left the nose too high in the air, so i added a 1.5inch helper in the rear. 3inch front/ 1.5inch rear

I have often wondered what it would be like to plow with a lifted truck? For those of you who have, do you find it hard to tell what you are doing when it comes to plowing, also how does the aftermarket kits hold up to the weight of a plows. I would think that with a lift that getting stuck would be a little less likely to happen. I have been wanting to do a 4" lift on my 85 chevy plow truck, any info would be great.

Antnee77
01-25-2007, 06:23 PM
It really all depends on the lift kit. Some are built stronger than others. Usually the downfall is in the suspension being too soft (made for off-roading) so it doesn't handle the weight too well. The biggest concern with putting a lift on a plow truck, IMO, is the plow's mounting bracket being too high in the air. If you can fabricate it so it sits low enough to mount up, you're good to go.

So here is the truck with the new led on it. Just for you guys that thought it was to clean, this ones for you. Here are some videos of the lights on. The first is with the old Whelen Edge on it. The second is with the New Led on. Word of advice turn down the volume for the second video. I keep forgetting that the new camera has sound.

I know most of the kits are labelled soft ride with the exception for Tuff Country, they do offer 2",3" and 4" H.D front leaf springs for the 73-87 GM trucks. I have seen a couple of solid axle Chevys lifted (soft ride) with plows and they didnt carry the extra weight very well.

1991 K-5 Chevy Surb. meyer 8'
1989 K-5 Chevy Blazer meyer 7'5"

Both handle the weight fine in the front. No weight in the back of em. just two salt spreaders. and to tell you what both of em don't sit any higher than his 2001 Dodge 2500 4x4.

It really sux that Chevy never made a SFA in any of their light duty trucks after 87.

01-28-2007, 11:33 AM
Just because GM didnt offer a SFA on 88' and up trucks dosent mean you cant have one, thanks to the aftermarket you can purchase the brackets that are for the IFS trucks to install a solid axle with leaf springs, I have some 4wheel&offroad magazines that tell how to go about doing this, I have yet to own a 88 & up IFS chevy, but when I get one I will defenetly consider this swap.

That would be a wise choice to all chevy owners. I hate how low they sit and your right they don't carry the weight well at all. Ford has just changed from Leaf to coil spring setup. I will never own a Ford with coils. They sit so low they don't even look like a truck anymore. Only fags ride low. lol.

01-28-2007, 05:32 PM
Watch what you say about ford leaf springs, they can and will sag with a blizzard. My 03 had spring replaced after the first winter. Once spring came around the truck was sitting about an 1 1/2 lower in the front. I put a 2'' skyjacker leveling kit with new leaf packs and that was showing signs of settling. I then put a 4'' procom kit on the truck and things were great( the sky jacker kit was good but I wanted a bigger truck). My 07 with coils is smaller than the 03 but it carries the weight very well. The truck rides much nicer too! It will also have a 4'' kit as soon as the snow stops flying. Leaf or coil doesn't matter to me it is the straight axle that counts!!!

Antnee77
01-28-2007, 06:02 PM
Yeah, it'd be nice if we could all just swap out for a straight axle, but it would cost somewhere around 10 grand when you're all done with it on my truck. Not feasible right now.

The problem that I see with doing the swap is that all the kits lift the truck up atleast 6inches. I havent seen a kit out there that will keep the truck at close to stock hieght.

You could swap for an SFA and still only raise the height of the truck by 3-4", but it would have to be custom built, and once again you arrive at the issue of cost. This is likely to cost you well over 10 grand. Not worth it, IMO. Either buy and old pre 88 GM truck, buy a Ford or Dodge with a SFA, or wait until GM finally offers coil springs in their HD trucks.
