    Hi Everyone. Im Paul. I have been lurking around this site for over 2 years, about half of that time as a member. I never really got very involved until just recently. My family's business involves acres (50+) of parking lot, all of which we plow ourselves. While this is not the whole fleet, it is a start. I will try to get pictures up of the whole fleet later in the week. The first picture is our 938G and the second our 966G. Wheel loaders have and will always be our mainstay when it comes to heavy equipment. We also have a Case 821B and an old W-14. The third picture is our OshKosh. It is a beast of a plow "truck". The last picture is a shot of the shed full of our Dumps. We don't really use them for plowing, just hauling. Let me know what you think.

    nice looking fleet... What exactly do you use the 966G on? Pusher? Bucket? If you bump a curb, what happens? Kinda a big machine for snow?

    Family business is a wholesale (dealer only) Auto Auction. The reason we have so much equipment/trucks is because we do all of our own maintenance, construction, and of course, snow removal. We are halfway between Binghamton and Corning on the State Border. We do not do any contract work. As far as what we put on the front of the loaders - we subscribe to the basket theory. I do not have any pictures of the baskets on my computer, but they are very efficient for our purposes. We have a 16 foot wide basket for the 966, a 14 foot for the 821, and a 12 foot wide high volume bucket for the 938. As far as the equipment being too large for snow removal, our lots are completely wide open, no curbs, islands or other obstacles other than all of the cars we have on premises. Ill get more pics up when I get home from school later this week. Thanks for the comments.
