    Thanks. I was really lucky in the winter of 09-10. I was in the right place at the right time. I turn 30 on Tuesday and only want a snowstorm as a present. We have not had any measurable snow yet this season. Faith in the Flakes!

    2 municipal is where most of the trucks go. About half the loaders are at a very detailed zero tolerance site and the rest are at a group of 4 sites within 2 square miles. So, 7 locations. When everything is working in unison there is 65 people working together.

    very impressive fleet!

    care to elaborate on the right place at the right time comment?

    What are your thoughts on the hooklift truck? Ive been kicking the idea around of getting one for awhile now.

    We had a 20" storm on 12/20/09 and then had 57" of snow between in 5 days in February. We do a lot of work for the local municipalities and I had trucks and loaders that worked for 336 hours on the clock. We bought one loader before the storm in December and then bought three more before the storm in February. The loader we bought before the December storm we put 503 hours on between December 5th and the end of the snow season.

    I love our hook trucks. We have two Swaploaders. One sl240 and one sl222. We have a 20 ft flatbed that we deliver equipment and salt with and hour snow bodies have legs on them so we can go from flatbed to dumpster to snow body in about three minutes. All we have to do is hook up the hydraulic lines for the spreaders.

    it seems like that muni work would be hard to get and keep because the numbers are public, every year a new company would try to come in and cut your numbers to get the work??

    contract work or by the hour?

    Did you buy the hook trucks new?

    Municipal work here is solicitation so it is very political. My guys don't have to be babysat and my equipment is really well maintained. So I am on the hotlist. The numbers are public and you are not guaranteed the call in. In those storms they were taking anything they could get their hands on. All work here for municipalities is hourly.

    We bought one new and bought the other two years later. The used one had a bigger cat motor and a Allison 3500 trans with air-brakes. Both have been de-rated to 26k. Both trucks were fabricated at the same company so all of the bodies were transferable and the trucks even look the same.

    No updates done. My personal truck has 167,000. The other trucks have between 20,000 and 90,000. I was hoping to have a great winter so I could cycle the trucks out before we have any major issues.
