    Had a productive day. Installed the 7000lb springs in my f350. Gave each truck a quick bath then decided to snap some pics.

    Background: We are a family owned landscape/Construction company operated by me, Daniel (boss), my brother Alex and my father. My dad has been in the construction business for along time, plowing for over 30yrs and has his own construction company. His specialty is masonry-brick/block and stone but he does general contracting as well. The landscape and maintenance side of the biz was started by me back in high school and now is ran by my brother and I. I am in college getting my Accounting degree as well as a minor in Entrepreneurship. I plan to go to law school and get a dual MBA and Jurisdoctorate degree. I want to keep this biz going, I like being my own boss and the income is good as well.

    I use the 2009 F350 Powerstroke Lariat as my daily driver and plow rig.

    Alex drives the 2002 2500HD 6.0L as a daily driver and maintenance truck but plows with the 1998 C3500 5.7L Dump. My father plows with the 2500HD(easier to use, lol) but uses a work van and sometimes the dump for his regular construction work.

    Our nicknames: Dan= Boss Man, Alex= Snow Slayer and my Dad is "Ol' Man Winter"

    Not pictured- ASV RC100


    Ford F350- Boss 9' 2" V
    Chevy 2500HD- Meyer C8
    Chevy C3500- Blizzard 810PP

    One switch turns on the floodlights mounted on the backrack, the other is just an extra for later use.

    She pushes well for being 11 yrs old and 2 wheel drive. We throw about 2 tons of stone 57 gravel up against the back gate for traction/ballast.

    When are you looking in getting one. Its actually not a bad system. It lets you have the option of having the lights left on the truck or taking the lights and plow off completly.

    lol, let me know if you need any opinions on the plows! my dad ran meyer for a long time, they are cheap and abundant here since they are made locally. we wanted a big plow for the chevy so we went with a blizzard on that. so when we got the 350 i wanted something that was made with better "quality".

    ya the 09 has the stock exhaust, the tabs/slots are to allow ambient air to mix in and cool the exhaust down since during regen you'll see 1500*+ temps

    thanks for all the compliments guys.

    Nice looking fleet. Any particular reason you haven't stayed loyal to one plow brand? I am a boss operator and fan myself, but the whole fleet looks nice. I agree with Quality_SR, that boss should be on the 2500HD.
