    Get the plows ready before the leaves in case the snow comes before the leaves are finished

    All mine will be off the shelves the 3rd week in october. Trucks will alos be brought in one at a time, to go through, and put new lights on them.

    We will bring in the boxes after that, the new loaders come between 12/6 and 12/15.

    Salt is already being delivered.

    Looking like a good start for the season so far.

    I am pulling stuff out and going over it all and giving a fresh coat of paint to whatever needs it. I am not going to go driving around to show my plows off though.
