    Awesome setup! But I had to laugh when jt5019 wrote that you are going to move some "serious" snow with that rig. In Maryland??? What you guys call serious snow, in NH we call poor sledding.
    But that brings me to the spreader you've got out back. I have a feeling you make as much money busting ice as you do plowing snow. payup
    What's the weight of the unit empty and full? Do you spread salt, sand or a mix and do you buy it that way or mix it yourself? Is it a stainless unit and if so does your experience say that's the way to go vs. painted steel?
    Thanks for your input.

    I think Maryland may have gotten more snow than us this year.. Let's just say the sledding is not so go lately, our town even bought a snow making machine for Robie park a few years ago! What up with the weather??? I guess just typical NE.

    I use salters like that

    We have a fleet that uses the Air-Flo salt spreaders like the Western. They overload them and don't take care of them, but they still last a long time (because I take of them). You must get it with the Briggs engine.
    Any other questions let me know. to_buy@yahoo.com (plows in subject line)

    Same here. It's a beautiful truck, but the only downside is the tranny. IIRC, 2001 was the first year of the beefed up Auto Trans.

    Thats some funny sh!t! Yeah a 3 inch snow fall closes down the city. Here 12+ inches and the only thing that shuts down is our city plowing service.:gunsfiring:
