    The back up truck doing an apartment complex. The last pic is of another truck that plows with us. The pivot pins either broke or fell out on his plow so he ended up driving the back up truck.

    First 2 are at a condo complex. Middle 2 are at Van Allen school and the last one is the big truck that normally gets used at the high school for there parking lot. With us being short on trucks it got pulled in to doing a couple other jobs as well. Here it is doing an Aldis. Its an old city of Burlington IA truck

    That sucks when equipment goes down. Atleast in that case it wasn't a large event. Get everything fixed for the next one. payup

    It also sucks when you get stuck. I saw this this morning when I was headed out to do some clean ups. Looks like the driver of the Bobcat was driving on top of some drifts and dropped thou the drifted snow.

    My pro wings are beat up but I plan on getting them back on ASAP after this last storm. We are outside Moline ,IL. Originally from Batavia, Iowa,born and raised. When you use pro-wongs so long --------then go out without them,seems like it takes forever to clear a lot.

    I really like the wings so far. I have only used them once. All we got was ice this last storm. I think the only problem I have with them is that when I pull into the driveway they hit and take out a bush at home. Moms probably not happy but oh well.

    Its a western part. Just ask your'll dealer. They probably will tell you they don't make suck a part. Since they rather sell you a new controller. You just have to take it apart, replace the board. Then put it back together.
