    KSP 1, hey those pics are just too cool. Gorgeous trucks:cool:
    Bet there glad to be running them this time of year too! I remember long ago it seems when we would get that type of a snow storm with some frequency, last few years any snow at all seems to be worth getting excited about. I love to see all of these snow pics from everyone that is getting it this year!:drinkup:

    Those trucks can legally gross 69,500lbs or 21 Tons. All 3 of these guys plow snow for me so it was easy to get the trucks on site in the morning. They usually haul salt out of the Cargill Salt Mine in Cleveland but the salt is very scarce these days so this job was alot more profitable for them.

    Hey Mike the Blue KW is For Sale. A cool $79,500 lets you swing the leg over her saddle. This pics for you.

    Is is illegal cause of too much weight or cause it's not tarped (covered?) Thanks.

    If it was that heavy to be over weight shouldn't the other wheels be touching the ground? ( they look like they're still up higher then the others)
    Or since you weren't going over the road with them they didn't bother to lower them?

    The trucks were in a parking lot so there is no need to lower the tag axles.

    KSP1,

    Is that a car dealer's lot. If so how do you charge them when they want to move the cars to plow?

    EIB,
    The facility is and Auto Auction, We charge them a per push amount. And then when they chose to move vehicles we have trucks on standby to clear any additional snow they want moved. They are billed an hourly fee for that service.

    Joe is that the Auto Auction place off of I-277 ? :waving: I drive by there every week to to some of my suppliers.

    I know what you mean all my lots have 7'-9' high x 20' deep plies some are over 1000' long.:eek:

    As for a "thaw" the rain & warm spell last week screwed us good as temp. dropped overnight to frezzing & has stayed well below frezzing & has turned all the piles into ice-blocks.:(

    Isn't it great that were having one of thoes winters ;) Were at the 5th most snow & still have a month+ of winter to go. All of my accounts are crying that they are 3 to 4 times over budget. I tell them they have been spoiled the last few winters.
