    Ok guys .... it has been awhile since I put some of my stuff up on here. We have made several changes to the fleet as well as a few new additions.

    First ... the fleet pic, not including my new 08' F350, the CAT Skid and the new Volvo L20B Loader.

    Second ... The new addition, 06' F450 6.0L Diesel. Came with a Temco Dump and Munci Hydraulic System on the truck already. So then I added the Buyers SS Spreader, Blizzard 810PP, and my Full Rear Fenders I always do. In spring the truck will go in to get the dump painted white to match the fleet, slanted side boards install like the 08' trucks, tinted windows, undercoating, and bed rhino along with a full detail.

    Third ... Rear Shot of the new addition.
    Four ... Another Side Shot.

    Thanks. The new F550 is a tough truck, it is the construction truck in summer and in winter goes out with the bed fully loaded each night (about 8-10 skid buckets of bulk). Pulls really nice and plows like a beast with the 6.4L but the mileage stinks. It doesn't really bother me tho since I will take the pulling power over a few gallons of diesel anyways. We have had a far share of issues too, but with great dealer support have been taken care of right away. The 08' F550 has had 3 injectors done and work on the 4wd already. The 08' F450 has had a transmission replaced at 7,000 miles already.

    So it is give and take.

    The power plow is about 1000lbs with the driver able to control all the options separately. Full straight in 10', Scoop is 8'6" I believe. The speedwing is set up with a cable and when the blade is angled the leading wing stays out for rolling and the trailing wing pulls back to the straight position, eliminating the driver having to do it with the controls. In scoop it is around 8'3" and only weighs about 790lbs. So a bit easier on the truck and the drivers brain.

    Stupid newby question. Do you find the full rear fenders help keep the dump in better shape? less rust and rot or do you only do it for looks? Thanks

    Yes. Big time. I have the bottom of the trucks sprayed with rust proof and then in the fenders put on. Stop any kind of snow, ice, rain, salt, dirt, etc ever making it to my truck body (dump and cab). Then is something does make it onto the truck the rust proof stops any damages. Plan on keeping the trucks a long time while also keeping the appearance top notch.

    you might have gotten a bad batch of 08's lol. there some out there with no issues on theirs but the early models had bugs. my 09 has been flawless so far, just a recall about replacing injector orings. but i have extended warranties on it for awhile.

    Rhino is holding up good. Maintenance truck is holding up GREAT and the construction truck is ok to good. It depends on how you use the truck. Beat your guys like I do haha just kidding. But honestly I have a great group of guys and they understand they get new stuff cuz they treat my stuff good in general. I take care of my guys since they make me the money!!!!!
