    Just a quick pic showing summer storage of plows, sander, and studded snow tires.

    Nice storage system you have there!

    BTW, are those Wrangler Duratracs? If so, I have those on my winter wheels, as well. They sure do get some serious traction when plowing. Also, I have found that they are quieter than my T/A KO's on my Hummer H2 wheels that I run on my truck during the summer.

    Yes, they are Goodyear Duratracs. The other set are Goodyear Workhorses. I like the duratracs a little better but both are good in the snow. Both sets are studded.

    Looks great Dean! Quick question though, how did you get the plows on bottom under the shelf? Maybe its the pic, but it looks like the lights would hit?

    Nice pics. Where do you buy shelves like that?

    Looks like he must have built the shelves over the bottom plows.

    He most likely put the plows in first and then put the bottom 2 crossbeams on. They install really quick.

    I have the same system but it holds 9 plows. It works great and the racking is pretty cheap.

    As CET says, I set the plow in place, then put the bottom crossbeam in place. They are very easy to take on/off. If I had more clearance in my garage, I would have bought taller racks to more easily accomodate but this is what works for me.

    I bought mine online from Global Industries. First order arrived completely destroyed so I refused delivery. I called and they shipped out a new order the same day.

    Yes, that's exactly how I do it. Just curious where you buy yours? I thought it was a little expensive but of course I can't find them locally. I had to buy them online and have them shipped.

    I would assume he is talking about the paper backing on the insulation. If you do any work in there at all get it coverd up ASAP. Any little spark would put that place up in flames. Not telling you what to do but just a little friendly advice from a Volunteer Firefighter

    Yes....I found that out a few weeks ago when I was using a cutting torch "outside" the shop. I was cutting bolts off some steel beams. I smelled smoke. Next thing I knew I had flames ''inside'' the shop. The insulation was about 8 feet away and caught a spark and fire was going fast. Thank god it was just some insulation laying loose and nothing else was around it. If it would have been wall insulation, I believe the whole shop would have went up and fast.

    There is a lot of it available used here. It looks new and is straight. I bought 4, 42"x10' uprights, 8, 9' crossbeams and 4, 10' crossbeams for $375. I'm in Canada though.

    I figured that after I asked the question. I hope to get it covered this fall. Thanks for the advice though!! I'm always open to advice.


    Fortunately, it's just me.
