    We' ve put about 20 hours on it. I cant really compare it to a rubber edge pusher because we havent used one. At first I wish we went with a 10ft, but the place where we use it the parking lots are all pitched towards the center and I dont think the 10 ft would scrape as well. I think I might pick up a used 10 ft rubber edge and see how it works.

    Overall I am happy with it. Im just not sure it was worth the extra money for steel trip edge. It does a good job and we've recieved compliments from the property manager. Im not sure if thats from the good job that the pusher does or our hard work. Probably a combination of both.

    Yeah I sold the salter off the ford. As for the truck itself, I dont have much into it so I'm not sure of its plans yet

    Thats good. No body wanted it huh just the salter. That looks like a nice shop you got there more room then the old one?

    Yeah I guess the truck didnt appeal to many. Oh well. As far as the shop- Its alright. There is more room inside but less room outside. So its both good and bad. This shop doesnt have heat either. The only thing that sucks about this shop is that it is on the complete eastern end of my service area. Usually end up driving east to load up and then back west to our service area.

    Yea not when its got the fred flindtstone floor system in it. :) Can you run a waste oil heater I know it sucks to come to a cold shop and wait for it to warm up. But beats wrenching out in the cold wind and snow.

    Thanks! I always enjoy looking at your pictures as well.


    Good Eye. The 190 isnt mine. I was borrowing it from a buddy to lift a salter off of a truck.

    Thanks. I couldnt do it without my family though. My dad and brother play pretty important roles.
