    Well, i didnt announce it yet here till now. But our shop got hit by a tornado on june 5th... It took my bros house, all our mowers and equip, 2 trucks, a suburban, and 2 cars... A ton of damage...

    Well we had a 2009 Chevy Silverado 3500HD and it got totaled, and we bought it back at auction... Now its my truck, im putting a flat bed on it, and am looking for a salter, we have a destroved v box but i want to be able to see while plowing...

    We had a Snow ec 1875... but their $2500 and up new... Ive been looking at the Snow Dogg TGS07 and its comporable to our old snow ex... An auger with varilable speeds, and the spinner too, and a vibrator...

    I found it for about $1500 locally, and was wondering who else has it, and any thoughts...

    Thanks!

    I don't have one but I really want one. It would fit my needs perfectly! I may end up getting one mid season. Sorry about your loss from the tornado. Hopefully nobody was injured or killed.

    I don't own it yet but will be buying one just based on great experience with our Buyers SaltDog SHPE 1500 V-Box. Buyers had some issues with controllers but as I understand it they are all worked out now. We NEVER had any issues with ours. I expect the TGS 07 to be solid if taken care of.

    I think the cheapest I've seen retail on one is 1350 at either Lorenzos or ESI. Cant remember which.

    Maybe if there's enough winter storm work, mother nature can help rebuild what it messed up. Here's to you blasting snow and torching ice. :drinkup:
    Good luck!

    I saw this model on their website a few weeks ago, looks a lot like an Airflo mss but for half the price. I currently have a buyers tailgate and vbox spreaders and really like them. I will buy another buyers spreader for the truck I just picked up.

    We have them locally where we bought our brand new Exmark Lazer Z from this summer after the tornado, so i hope he will give me a deal. But either way no shipping and handling, and some dealer support...

    Yea, i hope mother nature is still pissed at northwest ohio this winter so we can rake in some cash... I wouldnt mind working as much as i did after the tornado(hour wise) (but not for free) lol...

    Ok, thanks...

    Our V box that got destroyed was a older Buyers, but i think i like this one... So far nothing bad... Ill wait tho... I still gotta finish the truck and get it ready for this winter...

    Does it slide into the factory hitch? Looks pretty nice. I may think about getting one instead of reinstalling my Boss on my new truck.

    I have been thinking about one also. Got a qoute here local for 1350. Looks like a really sweet unit for the price. Any one have pics of it mounted? I would be putting it on the flat bed for now until I can a v-box but then transfer it to one of the other trucks.
