    I know the console that I built doesn't look all that great, but it made long hours of plowing a lot easier.

    Sorry if this page took a long time to load.

    I like it!

    Tim - that's a super looking truck. (I get the hint about posting other people's photos ;) - thanks again for posting the welding truck pics!

    I don't see anything wrong with the console you built - believe it or not, I put the controls for my Monarch powerpack in the same spot. Only difference was I made a pedestal from 2" HSS (square tube) with 1/8" plates (me weld - burn wood) top & bottom to bolt to the floor & attach the control box. Hmmmm - if I ask real nice, once I get a picture of it can you post it?

    Yes... I suppose. But I expect some snow in return.

    Snow in return? That could be difficult this time of year - I'm starting to think it really is over here for plowable events. We had a dusting the other night, just enough to make the roads dirty enough to undo the wash job I'd given the welding truck the night before!

    Maybe if I disassemble my plow it'll snow?

    Yes, my Pro Flo 2 kicks some serious butt!!! That thing has spread perfectly without plugging up once (and I even left some salt in overnight).

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    Nice truck,

    I think the center console looks good. Makes everything look like ready to use.

    Sweet truck, I love the setup, especialy the console nice touch. It's so nice I'd be afraid to plow with it myself, I'd be afraid I might scratch it and not be able to live with myself. I wish my truck looked that good.

    It's been a little too cool lately for me to give my SIMA sticker the proper adhesion it deserves...

    Nice truck CAT!!! I was originally thinking of getting one of those lightbars, but it was a little more than I wanted to spend.

    Anyone who wants pics of their trucks on the web, feel free to send them to me. I have a section on my website with just pics of Lawnsite's member trucks and plows.

    I have found a smaller light bar from Federal Signal at northerntool.com They give great illumination and have performed flawlessly on both of my trucks.
