    I have two now, one for off road diesel, one for gasoline. Use for the mowers, had some left over so was using it up. I don't like it too sit long. I would like to get a 1000 gallon for the trucks so I can run through another filter since I go through so many fuel filters no with the new diesel fuel

    We fill up at the end of the day. Less time, guys want to get home. Have it wired too a timer inside the shop, can't pump it unledd timer is on and they don't forget too turn the pump off.Stopping at the gas station was costing me too much. Coffee, sandwiches, ********. Now no stopping during the day, bring your lunch.

    Hey nice shop. I seen one of your trucks at Murray auto electric last week when I buying some stuff.
    Did you ever sell your dump or is that the one in the first pic?

    Good luck this year.

    I still have the dump, didn't want to put out the money for a new one so I kept it. Replacing it was around 72k. I was at Murray getting a hydraulic line for a skid loader I think. I'm always there. :) THe back blade is a snowman I think?? It works great the guys love it, We pull out the drives at a bunch of condos and then push it with the other truck down the street.

    Give em' a dirty look back. Doing this job, I've long since stopped caring what other people thought. I also have to agree with the below statement of the gas station taking time. And then you got the who stops there even when he's expected on a job and does not have to fill up.

    Its worked out good. They pull in right up to the pump. They have a check list to go through. Check oil in trucks mowers, fill up, tire pressure. There is a dumpster right there for all there crap in the truck. Back the trailer inside and its ready for the next day.

    I get more people asking me about the back blade. Just can't understand it. Kind of funny. I don't go out my area too much. Unless your east you won't see me.

    Suppose to be 50 degrees and rain saturday here. Of course, I have winter classic tickets. :) I thought the lake would be frozen by now with the cold december.

    I work all around Pittsburgh. I agree.. I have never seen another truck with the back blade. I also have condos. How efficient is it? Do you use it for anything else other then parking spots?

    This weather is garbage. I swear in the past 3 years every time we hit 40-50 in the winter it rains a quarter inch at least. Money flying out of my wallet.
