    That's awesome! Looks like a very involved install, though.

    9 foot box from Rugby, ele/hydro lift, works a little slow, so we install 2 vibrators to the under side, I have about a 4 inch space between the spreader and the bed, well have to install something to bridge this gap. should have it all installed tomorrow, and then i'll update the photos,

    EZ install appx 1 hour and the spreader was attached to bed, the wiring harness comes all made up from Truckcraft,, well have 2-3 hours in that, total less than 4 hrs. ( Josh is installing everything, I just helped to pick up the heavy end.)

    KCAPXIS,

    I see that yu have a B21 what is involved in changing from the hoe to the blower. Do you fing that the unit has enough power for heavy snowfalls?

    Thanks

    The back hoe on this machine comes off in under 60 sec... and then the 3 pt hitch is exposed, hookup is your standard 3pt, as for power? its lacking, no problems blowing virgin snow , but we used it to stack snow when the piles got so high that a loader could not stack any higher,
