    Planned on changing hydraulic fluid today, but apparently the wife thought my honey do list was more important.

    oh ya? What kind? Been a while since we've talked, but did I tell you we got a 450 dump?

    gotchya.....Unless 1 of my guys steps up to the plate and assumes some more responsibility (w/compensation for doing so, of course), I wont be looking to pick up any more snow work.

    I hear ya! We're farther behind than normal, as far as winter prep is concerned...but we've also had an exceptionally busy year with our other work.

    Well It's November. Guess it's time to start getting my head in the game. Not much change for me this year. Might have another truck or two going, but maybe have a skid and backhoe looking for work. We will see. Rob let me know if there's any of your old customers still looking for somebody. I should be able to help.

    Steven, if it's ok with you, I'll just pass your name and number on.

    Depending on timing, I may be able to help out if somebody local gets in a pinch or we get a monster storm.

    I figured I had a day free so I started pulling equipment out of my shed. First plow I hooked up and it would only angle right. I was hoping to hook up and go this year Silly me. Been a pretty busy year for me and the grass seems to still be growing! I'm actually asking a few customers if I can mow again even though it's November!

    Got a 12' Pro-tech pusher for sale that I need to get rid of ASAP.

    Motivated to sell.

    If you guys know anyone that needs one, let me know.

    Haven't been on here for a while, I think Mike is about the only guy I've talked to in the past year or so. Was in a pretty bad car accident, left me using a wheelchair for pretty much the long term foreseeable future. Hoping/ready to get back at this year though. Going to get my plow truck adapted to drive and looking at maybe picking up a new skid.

    Yea Mike we still got it. Been a pretty hectic year or so with all my stuff going on. I wasn't around work as much as I'd like to have been but I still got out and did a lot mowing. We had quite a few nice size retaining walls and patios this year. I've pretty much done about as much work as I can for the season so for right now I'm focusing on my therapy and hunting until the snow flies and hopefully then I'll be sitting in a nice new cozy skid.

    No, but will make due :dizzy: I'm hoping its just a salt run....grounds temps are awfully warm still for much to stick, but the temp dropping through the day 2moro, might warrant some salting at a few particular places we do

    Don't worry. I threw the plow on the truck and everything worked, so I doubt we'll see much of anything. If it was broke, we'd get 4" min.
