    Posting some pics of the season. We have not had much snow this season, 1 six inch storm, 3 two inchers, a bunch of dustings, and 2 icey events. Will post more as I get them put on the computer.

    This pic is the side walk crew pulling snow off the awnings. I know not osha approved, we have a osha approved man basket now so lets hold the smart ass remarks. LOL! Those roof rakes dont work that good and usually you pull the snow and it comes strait down on you on the really tall ones.

    Nice equipment! Why so many pushers? I only see two skids and the tractor?

    Ok good question! LOL! Where all that stuff is parked is a staging area. Usually there would be more equipment parked with the skids but its been really slow so everything else gets hualed in for the plow events. It works out pretty good and if a big storm is coming then 80% of the equipment will get droped off before the storm. Two of the pushers are back up pushers just in case. There usually is 2 backhoes, 2 tractors, 8 skids, and 5 trucks out plowing during the plowable events.

    That makes sense now haha! So I take it you bring in subs and let them use your push boxes? How do you like the Buyers "Snow Dogg" products?? How many acre lot is it that you guys plow? How do you like your topkick? The blade on it looks small for that size of a truck?? .....sorry for all the questions :waving:

    Everything looks great Mike. Been a slow winter up here as well. Everything early flew past the shore and dumped 5 miles in and other then a few 4-5 inch and 2-3 events we have been a little below average for the year. Going to be slow it looks like for the next 10 days so we will see how the rest of the season works out.

    Pretty much! We had a rough start with the Buyers pushers but all good now I guess. For the money they are not bad. We really like the snow plows, 1 on the 4500, 1 on a F450, and 1 on a Excursion. We plow many, several acre lots. The 4500 is so far the best dump Ive owned. The blade is nine foot and with the wings its 11 foot. Not small at all. It designed for that truck just like the pro plus western. I didnt want the 10 foot because they didnt have wings for it. Thats why I choose that blade.

    No problem! Ask away!

    been warm here for past few weeks...were supposed to get a total of 18" or so over two storms and got rain :realmad: they're calling for a storm next week, we shall see....

    that 4500 is nice like others have said, what size dump body? 11'? I'd love to buy one but its just so hard to find them in crew cab for under $20k.

    I cant believe you havnt had much snow, I live in northern Summit county and this winter has been extremely busy, Ive had almost 30 pushes already and Im sick of winter lol. To the OP I really like the 4500, I want to get a side dump on my next truck so it can be dumped without unhooking the trailers.
