    Really, selling the blower? I thought you had a use for skid blowers out there in the Bakken? If you want to trade it towards a tractor blower let me know what you're looking for.

    I like those S300's. I rented one on and off for a few yrs and it was as beast. Sounds like you found a nice one too, gotta like that!

    S300 Investment

    The unit was sold to me with the following attachments: Steel over the tire tracks, Bobcat 84" snow blower, pallet forks. A $ 33,000.00 investment.
    So deduct the attachments the unit was approx. $24,000.00 I arrived at this
    figure deducting the gain on the blower & tracks + cost of a used set of forks
    I did have to invest in a new McMillan Auger unit and two 18" auger bits one dirt one rock bit.
