    New V Plow for the 98 Chevy 3500. Its a 1 year old Western 8'6" MVP Plus (Will have wings soon, unsure whether they will be Western wings or Pro) I will be taking this plow some what apart tomorrow to touch up the paint, buff it out, and flush the hyrdo's...Truck goes in next week to get wired. The plow is in the new 7 bay shop we just bought. Has been completely rewired, insulated, painted, lighted ect. There is a power outlet every 10 feet, and the shop is piped for the air line (theres an air outlet every 6 feet, and a drain in between every outlet) You can just see a drain in the last picture under the right headlight. The air pipe is where the 2 colors meet. Can hardly tell its there ;) So far I love this shop.

    Actually it is electric. The oil pan you see is for the chain. I just sprayed the chain with used motor oil... Thanks guys. The loader is getting sprayed Saturday. We'll have two guys and 2 spray guns going. One on the back one on the front, should go very fast. I'm going out now to grab the bucket for her with the other loader, and finish up the new V plow. Might put a rubber snow deflector on her.

    Wow!....nice job. I have no need for a wheel loader with my main line of work, but maybe one of these days I'll get enough (snow) work to justify a one. BTW, your pusher looks nice and shiny, is it new?

    Got her painted yesterday. Decals and converter should be here before Thursday. Lettering this loader also. Here's a couple pics.. First thing that went on the loader was the chrome pipe. Should have more this week, the door and bucket get painted this week also, had a minor problem with the door. Sorry for the absolutely FILTHY shop. Loader parts and paint all over! She's getting cleaned this week now that the loader is painted.
