    Do you have to chain up the tires, or is it heavy enough that you don't have a problem with traction?

    My neighbor has Bobcats with the tracks - he drives right through the fields with it; unstoppable.

    Nice set up. I also like the GMC 1500 behind it.

    This will be the first year we are plowing with it, so I guess we will find out how it does. Thanks for the compliments.

    Do you own Home Solutions? Last year we went around and we firs got the one in Friedens then we got the one in Palmerton and Lehighton. They all know each other. Then this year we got the one in Slatington.

    No the skidloader has about 2000hrs on it and he paid 24,000. He bought the plow used and we just painted up, he paid 600 for that.

    We have William's Diner and City Diner

    Get some wings made up for that thing and you'll have the sweetest snow rig you've ever ran.
