    After set backs last year I was finally able to get out there this year. Off to a nice start. Still working on getting clients but a friend of mine has work and is passing some my way. Saying hello I've used this site for plenty of great info through the buying process. I really appreciate what this site provides!

    Picked this up yesterday from Tractor Supply since it was open on a sunday. I think I am already wanting to take it back and upgrade.

    Lestco makes an okay broadcast spread, anderson makes a better dropdown. Avon , sweet lots ofpayup money in that area. North of you Zionsville is wide open resi market, plainfield, Brownsburg , good area be in.

    Upgrade? What's wrong with this one ? Looks durable, how's it throw?

    It is not entirely bad. But I'm thinking I'll get something mounted on the truck so that I can buy salt by the ton. My buddies salt truck went down so I did a subdivision and a huge parking lot with this and had to buy all bag salt.

    Nice looking truck although I would say it looks like you need to do a little work on the headlights - aiming and wiring/bulb. Other than that, it looks good.

    Thank You. Yes indeed the lights do need adjustment. This was really my first day in the truck with the plow. I was in a rush and didn't bother to adjust them at all.

    Nice looking truck. I have the same walk behind spreader. Lasted me three years. I washed it frequently and used fluid film on it in between also. It lasted me three years and the frame rotted out on it. I now have a chapin brand spreader that has an all stainless steel frame. Probably the same price that you paid for that one. It's your call. My spreader spread the salt extremely well. Just the weak point is the steel frame.

    I got the plow from plainfield equipment they have great service. I've been all around this area giving estimates and passing out my door hangers but not one single job yet.

    I like your color matched front end - looks great.

    Probably tough to get customers this far into the season, but keep at it. Your setup looks professional so that will help a lot!

    Nice set up. You will get customers. Your door hangers are being saved for the off season phone calls to come your way. Good Luck
