    Triple L and I made a trip out to Ebling to pick up 8 blades. We had his installed while we were there and can't say enough about the qaulity of the product and the people there. Met Mark Oomkes and that was worth the drive alone.:nod:

    Nice!!! wesport Any rear tire flats on that truck will be easy to change now!

    Productivity can't help but go up with all those in the fleet.

    Rear plows are almost non-existent here in my area. If I did lots, I'd definitely take a trip out to Grand Rapids. I've yet to hear a negative comment about Ebling on here.

    And, yeah, I think meeting Mark would probably make the trip worthwhile :laughing:

    I probably won't keep them all I'll sell a few if anyone is interested. Mark is kind of entertaining, his Ford truck is quirky just like him.

    I bought my first back blade last season, an Artic, doesn't lift the truch off of the ground like the ebeling. Nice looking unit, there may be another in the future for me as well.

    Your going to have your lots done so fast you won't know what to do with yourself.

    They look well made and the tractor blades are pretty big.

    I see you came to my side of the state. Awesome equipment and plows. I was recently at Ebling's and they are a first class operation. How do you like that JD telehandler that you were unloading those plows with?

    I bought it about 5 years ago and if you call Featherlite you can still get one. It's a very well built trailer.
    I didn't realize you were taking pics, I was pretty impressed.
    I will take some good vids, if they work as good as they look we should be fine.

    Can you still run those snow ex v-boxes in the back of the pickup with that Ebling back blade ?

    Chad plans too, Ebling made a dual lift instead of a single for just that purpose. The salter will need to sit back 6" more then normal but it should work. Chad will know better after the first storm.
