    Ok, let me start by saying this. Dean, awesome looking truck, I know you just as well as anyone on this board, and I know you are a hard worker, and we just do what we have to, to be able to get by. Is your truck over loaded? Probably. Do I care? Absolutely not. Should I? No. THIS THREAD IS NOT ABOUT BASHING OTHERS EQUIPMENT.

    Everyone wonders why, I, and everyone else never wants to post an pictures of their equipment, I did last year, and still got bashed about the headlights on my new plow, and so on and so fourth.

    I am NOT saying that all of you that are listing off the GVWR weights, and how much he is over loaded by are wrong, no I am not, I am just saying this is absolutely not the place for it. I am not going to be immature and tell everyone to "grow up" and any of that, BUT, I will say, everyone needs to use a little more common sense, come on, this site is here for us to be able to give others credit, and get ideas from others, to better our business', not to hate, and bash anyone. The other thread was getting to long, so here it is. Just my $.02, and my opinion.

    Must've overloaded that truck so much with salt that it all spilled out and now you're going back plowing it into piles? If not what's that stuff you're pushing with the plow?

    It's all the left over filling that they couldn't get into the twinkies before they shut down. Cuz it sure isn't that white fluffy stuff that come from the sky, They called that stuff extinct on the news this morning.

    Here is a pic of my side walk unit. We put a few extra bags of salt in the back, so technically it's a bit over loaded. But it handles it well...

    This is a forum of professionals that discuss the aspects of business. This is not a club to sit around, knock a couple back and tell tall tales of your last hunting trip.

    There is lack of accountability when it comes to our industry and to point out to our industry that being grossly over-loaded and putting people at risk is more of a point of business ethics and helping to protect the communities we serve.

    If it takes demeaning someone or using harsh language to get the point across, then so be it. Sometimes that's what it takes to drive a point home and change the line of thinking some of these individuals posses.

    Driving a truck grossly over loaded and not licensed correctly is no different than carrying a loaded gun, in the open, without the proper license to do so.

    Got this off the tag on my friends Salt dog

    Salt course 950 lbs cubic yd
    Salt wet 1215 lbs cubic yd
    Sand 2565 lbs cubic yd
    Sand wet 3240 lbs cubic yd

    Not sure how accurate it is. I guess it depends how wet it really is.
