    2007 F-550 Powerstroke with 9' SS X Blade. Took all the rack body sides off and now have a Curtis Stainless Steel 2.5 yard sander with homemade box for all the controls so we can place it behind the seat and take it out when necessary.

    We just throw a tarp over the salt cheap and works good.

    hey when your plowing with the backhoe with that pusher how do you rock back on the back wheels to get some good downward pressure?

    I ran a deere 244J loader with a pro-tech pusher like that and I was just trying to adjust as I went along with all 4 wheels on the ground but I left some stuff behind...just wondering what you do

    the salt is actually fresh off the boats from that morning so it was still wet, it dried out now and is turning white. I will get some pictures of the control box soon to post them. Heres a pic of the 550 with no sides and the sander in.

    The Lettering and graphics on the truck are extremely nice. Is it a wrap? Where did you have it done? Very nice truck and equipment.

    Where abouts in southern NH are you? your name and logo look familiar.
