    They are great machines. Did you get the regular tires to put on in the winter? Those turf tires aren't going to be the best in the snow.

    Looks like a Downeaster, but I was wrong once before.

    What are you trying to say Chad? Predrinking?

    I loved mine, but the maintenance costs were getting to be too much to justify it remaining in my fleet. I just didn't use it enough in the summer, unfortunately. I will miss it, but my S650 is quite a bit more productive for plowing.

    Not sure if they are gonna change the tires or what the make the spreader is. I work in a different department, I haven't had a chance to talk to any of the maintenance guys yet. I snapped a quick pic when I was walking past.

    LOL

    We plowed with a Toolcat since '07. Skidsteers before that, just not ours. Tractors for 4 or 5 years now.

    So :p:p:p

    Local college started with turf tires on their TC and switched them after a few times out because they sucked so bad. Just basing my opinion on that.
