    Nice equipment. You look ready for winter. Your salt trucks look great! Are you starting to replace the International salt trucks with the kodiaks? If so, why? Good luck this year.

    Thanks for the compliments. The Internationals and the GM's are the same model years 07's. We thought we would try each brand in order to choose the one we liked. By going out of business GM assisted us by making the decision for us. So we have a 2010 Kenworth T370 being built right now. Should have it on the road in 6 weeks. Decided to try Keworth for their heavy Duty wiring and stainless steel cab construction. Hope its all its supposed to be. :)

    We have quite a bit of equipment. Dell has been in business for over 30 years and we plow allot of large commercial and industrial sites. We have over 80 people on the road when it snows and we don't use brokers for anything. So all the details and small things take allot of work. We specialize in difficult and high demand projects where specialty service is needed. So far it has worked out well for us.

    Very nice Doug-I have seen your salters around in the winter.

    Question-could you tell me the distance from ground to top of your spreader bodies on those single axles? We're ordering a couple of salters for some Internationals we bought and didnt want to go too high. Thanks.

    Stuff looks real professional! What's the little orange machine with enclosed cab and blower on the front. You picture it from the front. Looks like a walkway monster.

    Added a few more pics of our melter operations in action. Check'em out? I think they are kinda cool.

    Not qute sure of the overall height but I will get one of the guys to take a measurement. Thanks again for the compliments. Nothing like people seeing them on the road and remembering them. Appreciate it :)

    That is a Kubota B3030. We have blades and blowers for them and some have little salters. I agree with you...they are walkway monsters. I bought ours from Jeff Stewart at Stewarts (519 833 9616) Give him a call for all the specs.

    Measured from the ground to the top of the salter. Found it to be 107 inches. Hope this is a help to you?

    Thanks Doug.

    Not funny because that probably is your friends melter. We strongly considered purchasing a melter 2 years ago but when Dom bought his; we decided to rent it when we needed it. Dom has been great with the service and we can bill it out and still make money without the cost of carrying it on a full time basis. We actually rent most of our haulage needs from both Dom and Larry Vette as well. Both of them are good guys.

    We own the loaders the plow stuff and everything associated with the clearing of the snow. tymusic

    Small world Doug.

    For a second there I thought you were claiming it to be yours. That tractor actually belongs to one of Domenic's (Mimmo's) drivers, which I am very good friends with.

    so what would a melter run to rent?

    That's cool. The guy who runs the melter is really great at his job. He is right on top of the maintance (which is allot of work) and hangs in for long hours. We usually end up giving him a 12-15 hour shift each time he comes out.

    Rather then disclose what we pay for the rental of the melter let me tell you we charge upwards of $2500 hr for the melter plus loader fees,salt, float moves etc.... I am sorry but I don't want to answer what we pay for a rental fee as the guy who owns the melter may be charging other local people on this board different rates and that information could cause me a problem. I hope you understand? ;)

    That guy is Guy (short for Gaetano)-and you're absolutely right-he's solid. He's done 24 hour shifts on occasion-and never complains.
