    The 906 and the Horst is a cool toy! I'm not too far away from you,I just saw your Go plow entry video on youtube and I thought it was really good. Just thought I'd let you know. You're still 23, or 24?

    What kind of loader is that? Couldnt read it in the video. The 3720 setup is sweet! How do you like the drop spreader? What kind of lights are you leaving on all the time on the spreader? Its nice and bright!

    What happened to the v-plow and inverted on the 3720?

    Why the change to the front mount?

    Nice stuff. That cat and horst seem like the perfect commercial combo.

    Its a Cat 906H, with about 180 hours on it now... bought it in the spring...

    Those lights are rigid industries dually d2's... best lights in the world IMO... its honestly like daylight back there

    The epoke drop salter works great! Of course, its an epoke

    Got out of the residential nonsense that this just made sense... Plow and salt all in 1 pass

    The cat and horst are the perfect combo, the deere and blower and salter are by far everyones favorite, the operator simply loves the setup and couldnt be happier with it...

    Will post some movies of hauling snow with the high dump tomarrow :drinkup:

    Congratulations for doing so well at a young age! We get a lot of stuff from Connons too, why come all this way to get stuff from there?

    Thanks, Waterdowns only a half hour drive... I can get stuff at Connons for a third what i can buy it for here... The product quality, size and savings make the choice very simple...

    I don't enjoy watching many of the video's posted on plowsite because they are not that exciting, but this was actually a nice vid!
    I imaging you're enjoying plowing with the new Cat? There's nothing like the manuverability of a compact wheel loader. Glad it's working out...

    Which ones are you talking about? the backup lights on the pickup are rigid industries dually d2's... I swear its literally like daylight back there... IMO worth every single penny I paid! Best lights ever, I'll be putting them on my other pickup and I'm throwing around the idea of putting them on the loader as well... Get the D2's and you wount be disappointed... save up for them and dont cheap out and by a cheaper brand cause I've seen lots of other led's and have been disappointed with all of them...

    For the beacon lights we run Whelen amber and blue all in 1's... You can see them in most of my other videos... Very happy with the beacon as well... I read about people being mad u cant see led beacons in the daytime and the awnser to that is you get what you pay for...

    Thanks soo much!
    I only got about an hour and a half in on the loader myself personally as far as snow goes... We've done 3 full pushes, me and the operator werent very fond of the horst on the first push but we got it all figured out now and are very happy with it right now! The Cat's been great! Quiet, comfortable, powerful, quick and the visability compared to a pickup is unreal... That being said I still enjoy running the truck and I leave the equipment for my employee's...:drinkup:

    It's pretty hard to beat the visibility of a tractor or loader, and really hard to beat the manoeuvring of a loader.

    I'm really looking forward to hearing how that loader handles things when we get a big push.

    While I personally would rather run equipment than a truck, its hard to do sometimes.... Your equip looks great! Good variety, and highly productive combinations. Congrats.

    my kids size tractor blowing back some snowbacks to make way for a chainlink fence...

    I dont care what anyone says, the 3720 has wayy too much power and is impossible to bog... This was the first time I drove the tractor with the new blower and salter and actually used it myself and lets say I was pretty impressed...
