    Nice Dually and Deere! Do you have the pusher on another trailer or truck to transport?

    yes/no, i sometimes transport the plows/push box etc on an 18' landscape open trailer, but that trailer and box, and plow usually stay onsite. too much running back and forth when i dont need to.

    The trailer is by far not the most ideal for the tractor, its a 14' dump trailer box, 14k rating, its about 7inches too short to fit the boom of the loader and tractor rear ballast weight box inside for transport, so it has to be loaded as seen, the truck can take the weight up front more so thats not an issue.

    I planned, still plan to get a 2 axle 14k or 3 axle 21k 30~ft flat deck over gooseneck trailer hopefully this spring. Id like the ability to load the tractor, push box, and 84" bucket on and have room to spare. I can then also transport pallets of salt easier and i think im going to get a seasonally "fabed up" 7' x7' salt box up front on the new trailer. If we have any larger sites next year i can transport a few tons of salt on the trailer and load it onsite into the bulk spreaders, anything left goes back with us. Most place at least in NJ wont allow bulk salt piles on their lots. Theyll allow pallets covered in the back sometimes but thats it.

    We try to keep everything maintained well, stuff wears out and gets damaged though... Everything is washed as often and soon as possible with the temps. All eqiupment besides trucks/trailers are stored indoors or in enclosed trailers all year. Im still working to get garage space for every truck and for the trailers one day too. Next year we will be keeping the enclosed trailers indoors as well for the winter months when theyre really not in use.

    yeah it had the chrome package too ;) My other 06 didnt have it when i bought that 2 years ago, i think its always rubbed me the wrong way that i didnt get the fancier ford 5" tubular step rails and had the straight 4" ones.. not a huge deal but i always noticed so many crew cabs with the chrome package later i always thought about it.

    I didnt know if i liked the dually or the short bed or the truck being black when i first looked at it. My 03 F150 is black and i wasnt thrilled about a 2nd black truck, but it does look awesome. The vinyl is all reflective, looks neat at night

    The truck, although id rather a long bed, is awesome, carrys way more than my other f350, although i thought that carried a ton to begin with, has the 4.30 rear end gears for the tow boss package, 15k 2.5" receiver, only thing it doesnt have is a sunroof i guess, dont need that though. I had to buy a block heater cord for it and thats about it.

    4x4 shift on the floor wont engauge though unless i manually flip the hubs, not sure why. With at least 2-3k in the back, you'd never need 4x4 plowing unless your on ice or pushing a mountain

    I put it in 4x4 the other day when i had less than 1300lbs in the back.

    Im sure trucks like F550s and 2000lb bodys and 5000lbs in the rear wont ever need 4wd but id still probably not buy a 2wd f550.

    Really nice stuff and you take great photos. Is it frustrating that you don't get to use that stuff more often, being it doesn't snow that much in NJ?
