    Yeah I'm upgrading to a 9ft plow this year because they give the wider roads to the guys with the 9fter's I got stuck with alot of crappy roads last year.....

    Hey Guys! I'll jump in on this thread too.

    I just finished replacing the hoses on my Fisher, and decided to replace the reservoir while I was at it, since it was looking kinda crusty. Check over is done, and I'm ready for snow!

    Got a call from my DPW superintendent the other day asking if I was still on the program this season, and that they're sending out the contracts now. Should be all set soon. I hope to get the same route as last year, too. I thought it was a good one, but I don't really care. All the town guys seem OK, so I doubt I'd mind working with any of them.

    I'm hoping this year to also sub for someone in addition to the town deal. Once the roads are set, I kinda hate being "done" when there are lots of guys still cleaning lots and driveways. A little extra cash wouldn't hurt either, payup.


    Hope we all have a good season with no accidents, mechanical failures, or other BS.

    Ken

    I'm replacing and old rig (2000 Chevy 2500 w/ 7.5' MM1) with a new one. There is a leftover 2009 Ram 2500 gasser just like the one I have now but in silver at a local Dodge dealer, with a 8.5' Xtreme V that I'm trying to workout a deal on right now.

    I make myself wait until Nov 1st to take it out. Unless i hear its gonna snow lol. Otherwise its just in the way until i finish cleanups.
     
  20. I'm still waiting for the year when I have to plow snow while my towboats are still in the water. Now THAT would be interesting. My two worlds colliding! :)

    Both towboats stay in the water until the first couple of weeks of December.
