    We Have Found Timbrens to be the Best Solution and wonder what others use.

    We did get a fairly good deal on Timbrens on our last order. We will attempt to recover the invoice.

    Thank you for your patience.

    2x.:rolleyes:

    Did you get those pics?

    Maybe you have some before and after shots.

    I'm very interested to see how you have the 2 guys shovel a path for the wheels of your truck.

    The paths are cleared using snow throwers.

    I am surprised by the number of people who have responded that they use no front end enhancements. We feel that performance and longevity are dramatically increased with some type of support.

    Thank you for participating in this informal review.

    So I have this right, you send a truck with a plow , 3 guys and two snowblowers to an account.

    To stop the wheels from packing down the snow you have the 2 guys with the snowblowers clear a path for the wheels?

    I'm just trying to picture how you do this?

    That's what "SuperPlowers" was telling me how they cleared snow from a drive.

    some guarantee of clean pavement?

    I was just trying to ask him about it.

    For some reason in stead of deleting a few posts the whole thread was deleted so ,,,, class was canceled? lol

    I use air shocks pump them up for plow let the air out without plow NO change in ride comfort without air in shocks.

    "longevity are dramatically increased with some type of support." only helps springs dose nothing for ball joints or tie-rod ends, wheel bearings....

    I have always thought the same too. It just helps ONE part of the suspension.

    Superplowers, I feel like we`ve gotten off to a bad start, first of all welcome to plowsite. From what I can see you portray a very unique perspective and present yourself in peculiar manner which I have a feeling will make you very popular on this site. Tell us a little more about yourself and your company as I think it`s safe to say that the plowsite community is very interested.

    As for Timbrens we don`t use them. The majority of our trucks are 1 tons and don`t require them.

    I dunno Snofarmer, if we get into that whole debacle again with these guys and our "friend" pops in, this may get deleted as well, LOL:D

    All right, I want to ask, what kind of trucks/plows you guys running? I cranked the t-bars on my truck and run 400lbs ballast in it. No timbrens yet. When I go to a bigger plow (8ft) I will toss a set in

    I use em in the back. Wouldn't use anything else. 6k of sand is way to much for springs.
