    So, I figured I'd show off my stuff. I don't have a bunch of pictures yet but tomorrow when I go into the shop I'll snap a few more. First up is my truck.

    2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a Western HTS Plow. I just finished installing the plow last night after my old 1989 Ford F250 took a crap.

    I'll get a few more pictures tomorrow of the truck and plow.

    Secondly, here's my shop!

    Inside there is the Rhino with the plow on it, snow blower, and a **** load of other stuff.

    Truck looks great, is that a personal shop or company shop?

    Thanks, so far the front mount sits about 4" off the ground so I need to do some sort of lift on the truck. I am bottoming out on driveways that are a bit too steep. I've only pushed minimal snow with it, and I myself am curious how the 1500 will do in a heavy, wet snow.

    The shop doubles as both my company shop, along with my personal shop. Half is company, and the other half is personal storage.

    I've been meaning to grab a few pictures, but I've been so darn busy with all my end of season mowing stuff, and start of season winter stuff - I haven't had any time.

    Finally got pics of stuff, I've been crazy busy with just everything!

    Here is the Rhino that we use in our 55+ communities.

    The old Ford, 1989 F250 with the 351ci in it. Plan to get it running and let my brother use it for someone, or maybe just sell it.

    Thanks all! The Rhino does really well on sidewalks and small driveways where my truck is just too big. It seems to work better than the truck, mainly because in these 55+ communities the roads are narrower, and it takes a bit more work for the truck to push snow back up into the yard. Where the rhino we just push out and then right back up without fenageling around.

    Oh yea man, the old Ford is a beast. My original plan was to restore it somewhat and make it a decent looking truck. I needs a new cab floor, as you can kind of see the rocker panels are rotted out and the driver side has no floor... Minor stuff tho, LOL!
