    mounted blower.

    We will post more pics of equipment in the future and some action shots.
    I thought I would start with these because they may be a little unique.

    Nice looking units. Is that blower a kit you bought or is it homemade.

    Very nice, that looks like a real handy piece of machine, love the kage system. Good luck with that and would love to see pics or videos of it in action, cheers

    It is heavy, but the

    route is short in driving distance and with the Timbrens and some ballast it works great!

    Thanks JD, it was bought as a system

    with an Arctic 8' straight blade so we can utilize either one.

    We bought it through

    Thanks!

    The operator loads it by hand

    We only use one hopper on the route it's on. It can spread dry bulk, but we just run bagged throught it.

    It does very well, the cab is

    comfortable, it goes 19 mph and does not bounce badly at all, and is quiet.

    Those telehandlers are great. Interesting setup on the pickup too. Do you have a pic of this working?

    Just make sure you don't telescope while pushing snow or you could bend the boom. I'm pretty sure the boom alone (no cylinder or other parts) is around 5k (maybe different I priced one out a while ago). other than that those are great for plowing with the 4x4x4 and at the end of the storm toss the bucket on and you can stack the snow.

    That JCB looks AWESOME!!! :yow!:

    I have never seen a pickup with that setup before. Any issues with hitting any obstacles?

    Good luck this winter! :salute:

    Good looking fleet. Not your average machinery.
