    Its been a easy yr
    No repairs
    To oppi2010 sound like you take things little slower so dont hit things
    I had a guy working for me once Always in a rush after hitting few signs and using frozen snow plies for a brake ended up putting the plow under the truck I let him go I couldnt afford him

    Lol good one! :nod: :salute:

    I haven't broke anything except a few bolts but that cost a few bucks only.
    Buddy of mine hasn't had the same luck, brake line, tranny (not sure what specifically), flat tire 2 in the same night, plow hydro pump, hydro line, starter.

    Nothing major, spreader gas motor, hydro line on a tractor and that is the most of it.

    I dare say thank God it was a slow start (it's still slow). Nothing major but all happen in the beginning. Blew 2 hoses that looked like they were new. The loader needed 2 new batteries 2 days after it was starting fine, also replaced a starter in it, operator ran it out of fuel because the damn gauge stuck at 1/2, skid steer gelled up twice (with additive in it). Chased my v box tarp half way across a Lowe's parking lot. Other than that it's been pretty good. Now I just have to use up the last 30 tons of salt but that doesn't even look hopeful.

    Last year, I had a garden hose get pulled into my 8 horse unit. Wound around the tines like no tomorrow.

    Took about an hour to cut through the hose, and I was left with 40 short hoses for the trash man....
