    For those of you that do not know me my name is Nick and I manage a commercial snow removal company in Fargo ND. Here are some pictures of the company's equipment. The white dodge is my personal pickup used as a backup truck and at the farm.

    Make sure you train your staff well with the arctic. You'll love it come the end of the season with all the $ you've saved by buying it!

    you guys really think you save that much money with the sectional? salt expense is that the savings? better scrape, less salt?

    Yeah...The same guy is going to be running that one every time it snows. I told him to go to the arctic website and watch the instructional video like 10 times!.

    None yet...just a dusting on friday to make the roads slippery, thats it.

    Such a nice stainless dump body, Why the V-Box and not an under-tailgate spreader?

    You guys would shed about 1000 pounds or better off the total weight.

    Nick,
    On that dodge have you noticed the plow starting to bottom out after it's been on the truck for a while? (meaning years not hours)

    Oh heck yeah! The Sectional's and Boss BX12 are about the best out there I think. I've seen first hand the difference in our BX12 and a regular push box in the same conditions. Another company plows a small strip mall in front of a large box store we do and they used a SnowDogg (I think) but whatever it is it has a rubber cutting edge and it left quite a bit of snow compared to our's and it just stands to reason the more snow left the more salt your going to need. I bet we saved at least 15 tons of salt at this one lot.
    Any way's hey Nick.....looking forward to more cool video's WITH GOOD MUSIC like Nickleback etc.
