    There is one, just one little area that might 9 foot wide by 10 foot long that needs to be backdragged out. Next time I'll have the Sidewalk crew blow it out. I forgot all about until the crew was gone.

    Sorry, I'm gonna hijack your thread for the title and give credit where it's due...

    I find their customer service fantastic.
    We just had a long weekend up here in Canada, a storm rolled through on the Friday(20cm) and my tornado salter let me down. Everyone closed up for the weekend I throw on a tailgate salter for the 3-4 ton that I need to throw, ( Did you know...shoveling 3-4 ton a day really hurts.?)
    End of route I get at the salter, download some pdfs get some help from others on ps and come to find I can't jury rig up this fix. Later that night the stress of it being down for the weekend with more lake effect coming, I contact John Murphy, maybe he knows of a dealer with storm support. He's on vacation but still takes the time to contact his co-hort Hugh Wilson to get a hold of me from Milwalkee.
    The short of it is, they put me in touch with Mike King the Canadian distributor, who helps me get it into a dealer and covers it parts and labour...it's a 6 year old spreader, I am a small potato to these guys but they step right up everytime.
    Equipment breakage is a fact of this business, it doesn't care about holidays in fact seems to like breaking at the worst possible moment. nothing worse than not being able to get parts or service in a hurry. I am so glad I went with western. John, Hugh, and Mike were all great to deal with if you have a DD problem they will do everything in their power solve it for you...
    Thanks Guys!!!!!!

    I saw a picture of your truck on Western's FB page. Love those Harley-style headlights, and the rest of the truck! I can't wait to be in a 6.7 later this year.

    Highjack away, I have no problem with that.

    John was my point of contact last year here when I developed a problem with my WO. Thru him, I was connected to Hugh. After we spoke on the phone we made appointment to meet at the plant. I met with him, the Plant Manager and a few others. They told me not to worry, continue using my WO and we'll address the my concerns at the end of the season.

    Hugh and I exchanged a few Emails over the off season. In Oct, Hugh called me and offered me plow of my chioce. I had a couple wild creative thoughts like a red XLS on a WO frame or something else I can't comment on yet. Anyways, together we came to MVP in SS and black wings. In Nov, I picked it up and because of my out of town and lack of snow I havent been able to use it.

    I've been a Western owner for 25 years, I'll BE a Western for another 25.

    yes, I knew this

    yes, I also have a set mounted in the rear bumber

    Oh YEA!!!!!!!

    A buddy here on PS did them for me.

    Thanks, I do have a couple on minor things done to it

    that was cool of Western to do that
