    I have to say the tlb. In all my experience plowing with backhoe's, tractors, skid steers my favourite by far is 4x4 tractors.
    The skid steer is actually out the door tomorrow (sold), we are always updating our fleet usually every 2-3 years at the minimum. The plan is once the 430 is gone Im looking at a smaller case sr130 skid and also another mid-large frame tractor, maybe even another tlb?
    Gonna try and keep the new skid primarily for summer work and then some light plowing/backup for the winter and then run the tractors for winter work primarily.

    Really nice equipment. That 110 really pushes the snow pretty well

    I use our tractors mainly in the spring, summer and fall for a little custom farming for
    small to medium acreages, rotary cutting lots, aceages and roadsides, Also use a
    post hole auger on loaders with a skid steer adaptor plates attached to the loader
    Winter snow plowing is used to keep my employee's occupied for the winter and to
    draw winter revenue during the slow construction season. Use your equipment year
    round it takes the edge off for me to just jump in a tractor ( when stressed ) crank up the volume turn up the AC and enjoy the ride

    Been really busy around here with work and finally my last semester before graduation. So our latest purchase was for our new (since spring) Case 420. Its a Boss 8" SS blade with wings. After the Landscape show I was considering a Kage but as usual my John Deere dealer out of Milton came through and gave me a price that I couldn't refuse. Here are some pictures, which reminds me I need to get the equipment together for a 2012 fleet picture.

    Enjoy

    The JD 110TLB is one of my favorite machines by far, thats what I ran before i bought my green JD. I would have bought a 110 but they had already stopped making them and the only thing available was a new leftover open station that they could put a curtis cab on.....I wanted a JD cab, so I went the route I did. There are some upsides and downsides over the 110 but I can live with it.

    Do you have the rear tires loaded on yours? Do you take the backhoe off to keep the machine as short as possible or do you have something you run off the PTO sometimes during the winter?

    No I don't have them loaded. The machine works perfectly set up the way it is for our application.

    Another slow day for us, so decided to wash some of our equipment. Here's a pic

    Well here is my latest purchase.
    I've wanted one of these since they came out, and man can I say it was worth the wait.
    Picked her up today, only thing missing is my running boards which will be in next week.

    How well does your case 420 start in the cold? I got one and if its more then -5 it doesn't like to start without being plugged in.

    We keep our skid steer in our shop since its route is local....So I can't really comment on it being cold started

    Did you put a plow on the Denali yet? Duramax diesel?
