    Well, we got some snow yesterday but just flurries, lol. The night before, it rained and froze over night so I finally got to use the new spreader I got from Plow Meister. The thing worked great!! I put down 30 bags at one account and 8 at another. Now maybe we can get some use out of the plows soon.

    What type of spreader is it? 30 bags, How many times did you have to get in and out of the truck? We had some snow flurries here today. Started sticking on the grass and along the side of highways. No need to salt. It all melted away about 15 minutes after the sun came out.

    Sorry it took so long getting pics. We've been salting every other day for a week and got a few plowings in. I plowed more last weekend than I did all of last season. Pathetic.

  11. I see it has a built in stop light. Nice feature. I'm planning on installing on on my 1075 snowEx. Probably a small bank of LED's.

    Looks good!!!!

    The Boss, that thing is big. No wonder it only took 2 fill ups.


    Eyesell is that the one with the button to raise it? Aw red one of my favorite colors.

    Yeah it's pretty nice, I have a small dolly I bought and lower it when finished, push it into the garage and your done, it's pretty cool.



    P.S. Don't look at my messey garage :dizzy:

    Yup, it's mine. Now that you mention that it does look like GMC up close but trust me, it's a Ford.
