    peterbilt, i love your vids and your setup, that expandable box is slick, since seeing your vids and photos i am thinking of dropping one of my trucks and getting a mid sized loader and having it drive around to plow the buildings with a box plow instead of the pick up, keep the vids and pics coming

    We Lease the Volvos. Untill this past year I couldn't find a full time use for one, but now I do. I want it for everything from loading topsoil, Using it as a fork lift at the shop, and parking lot sweeping. They are so handy, we hardly use the skids when the L20s are around.

    We plow mostly mid-sized office parks. Lot of corners and islands to trim around. I have 4 plow trucks and 5 loaders. A typical push takes any where from 5 to 6 hours with all machines running. This morning we ran the machines in the videos along with 2 trucks and ran the whole route in 5 hours.

    The little loaders are slow roading machines but in a parking lot, where we can keep short pushes 100 Yds or less, we can keep our production way up.

    What does that have to do with him re-posting them?
