    hi all :waving:

    im the noob here name is karl im gonna do some plowing this year never done it before but i finally got the truck ive always wanted.. :redbounce

    1986 chevy 1/2t 350/700r long box . the truck was set up for work runs good trans works awesome (an earlier owner used the AC condenser for a trans cooler and it works real nice! dual tanks also

    i have a 7.5 fisher olds school conventional mount with a fenderwell mounted pump SEH. and joystick
    I installed all my self after taking off another truck (PITA btw) truck is getting overload lift springs installed looking for 4.10 gears and a posi or lockright for the rear end i run 265-75-16 tires on 16x8 alum rims LR "D" and and going to buy a tailgate salter also .. i think that about it oh im a OLDSMOBILE GUY also

    ive still only got well under a grand wraped up in this truck and im building it to be a beast + play offroad in the summer a little bit ..

    so there you have it ive been reading a few threads and i like the general aura of the site everyone seems really nice
    ive got tons of questions

    welcome, noob :p It sounds like you have your rig all figured out, but do you have any accounts yet? Are you sure you need the salter this year? Lastly, make sure you get yourself covered with plowing insurance. Have lots of fun, I know I do.

    thaks grn

    about this insurance can i get it from my regualr ins company i dont have any acct yet i only really want a few maybe 5 as its just me and only me doing all the work. i would like to do some residential stuff and will by picking up a little bigger snowblower for that. as far as the salter i dont know if i need it but if i can pick up a few bigger accts it will come in handy im sure. i do know they charge up the buttt for that up here..

    my plans are to string this into some spring time work ..
