    the machine is in great shape, but will need new tracks at the end of next year most likely. No dents in the machine just scratches in the paint from normal use.

    U will need track before the snow flies. U will be sliding all over if you dont. I changed mine last year and it was night and day difference. Change the tracks on your own. It will save you major $$$ and it is very easy.

    on an asv machine? i really think i can get this season in with the current tracks and was going to replace them come fall next year. Ive heard that ASV tracks are night and day difference when compared to standard CTL tracks


    We are not purchasing a box for it this winter, The company my brother subs out for told us they have boxes and would like to put that machine to use, so my brother will be running the machine with their box, and we are going to be putting another person in the truck he used to sub for the company.

    If all goes well, Id like to be picking up a 10' Arctic Sectional Box for it next fall.

    thanks for the comments fellas! happy plowing...

    Those artic boxes are nice. They are right down the steet from me. And I have seen his machines in action with them. They do a beautiful job.

    Go ahead and try the machine with the same tracks. If you slide around, then buy some. They are easy enough to do that you can change them between storms if needed. Ya gotta try to save where u can this year!

    you nailed it right on the head lol! $2,028 for tires (just the tires and shipping, no mounting), $13,500 for machine, and a bunch of random little expenses for getting the trucks ready for the winter that always add up.

    it will prolly be subbed out with my brother operating, so if he takes a bit longer cause hes sliding, then its no skin off our backs.

    when i change the tracks i want to see if they've updated any other mech parts on the undercarriage and if so try and put on the newest pieces for reliabilities sake.

    Im going to wait until the off season next year to purchase one, he gives awesome deals on the demo units he would run at trade shows, like 40% off.

    we do have the aluminum rims, the premium OEM ones, they are running 275/65 BFG All terrains right now that are going to get worn through this summer. after those are gone these tires are moving on to those rims possibly.

    it handled it fine, although you could definitely tell it was back there. 13-14K worth of equip and trailer really lets u know. The one thing that was really amazing is how good Ford's brake controller is. Once I had the gain dialed just how I liked it, that thing stopped soo well! it was surprising.

    nope, got them off Ebay. They are power adjust(top portion), heated, and manual extension. They are designed exactly like the oem ones, but you can tell they are a bit cheaper.
