    Just put this truck together. They just said warmer than average December, lets hope they are wrong.

    Now that's a salt truck! My money is on the pickup beside it, as it will simply dust that thing in plowing! It's big, terrible visibility, slow and 2wd... Nice salt truck tho

    Thanks! It is a beast. The main purpose of this truck is to plow a couple bigger lots and start spreading. It is nice to have a blade on the salt trucks due to any cleanup work that needs to be done (county truck humps) or the 3am surprise storm. The white square is a poly tank, holds 100 gallons of pre wet.

    Id recommend tire cables, not necessarily chains. I just sold my single axle 6500. When it was loaded with salt it was ok, but coming home empty, wow look out with that plow hanging out front.....

    We have a 5500 with the same problem when its empty. We had an older 6500 with a 10' straight, so we know what to expect. We can't use chains here in MI. Not sure about cables, never, ever seen anyone use them around here.

    That is awesome. Whenever you get some snow you should take a few videos of that beast in action
