    That Kubota must have plenty of power to plow. What are you using it for (lots, driveways, ect.)? Your 1986 Chevy is realy nice to.

    Sweet trucks, I love your '86, I had one just like it. Sold it last year, worst decision I've made.

    Awesome tractor, Get some weight hanging off the back of it, will help tremendously

    I agree with cuban, Nice rig. Hang 500-750lbs off of the 3pt and push some snow. Do you just run a dirt bucket on the skid?

    The old custom delux have to be the most dependable trucks gm ever made, I would take an old k30 over a nbs sierra or silverado any day

    Mine never let me down, the last winter I had it I pushhed with no ballast and summer tires n it still didn't let me down. I absolutely loved it, the 6.2 was never thirsty. I'd fill my 6.5 1.5 times b4 I filled the 6.2
