    Only second year doing snow removal. Picked this loader up in the fall for a good price. She could use some more TLC but we are gonna get throught he winter with it and figure out a plan for it. More pics to come, just cleaned out the camera.

    Heres a pic of our '99 F250 5.4 with a Western 7.5' Unimount. Pretty dirty, the guys are washing trucks and equipment today so I will get a clean picture later.

    NOT one of our trucks...but a good story...

    This guy pulls up to me today as I am heading into the grocery store. I am driving my truck with a Western V and a Snowex 1075 spreader on the back. I just shut the door and the guy asked if we are hiring any subcontractors. I said we are always looking for reliable subcontractors. He says he is reliable and his equipment never breaks down. He may be right but this is what he was driving. (at least theres a new cutting edge)

    Actually this is our second year with a national and I have no complaints. We rented a loader last year and this year decided to put that money into a loader we can keep. It runs smooth and everything works just a little dirty and faded paint.

    As far as the national company goes....if you do what they ask, do it right the first time, and keep your records straight then its smooth sailing....and get paid on time!

    Soon as it warms up I am blasting the bed side where the rust is at and we are going to paint it. The rust looks awful.

    After last weeks storm when we got 15" inches I was so happy we had this loader. I was able to move piles and this thing runs like a beast. I can't wait for the spring to go through it and do preventative maintenance. Its already paid for itself and love running it. Its not the newest but no financing for me.
