Haven't seen it!

Haven't seen it either. I'm all the way in Germany so I can't cry about the timeliness of my mail to much! I'm lucky they even send it to me.

I'll have to keep my eye out for it though, another paisan from CT famous; who would have known!

You guys are right,Dino is famous.Finally recieved my copy of snow biz.

I think I know the real reason Dino isn't going to Denver,cause he doesn't want to get mobbed by all his new fans.:D

Well great article Dino and good luck to you.

ranger?

I noticed in the backround of one of the pictured of Dino that there is a ford ranger with a plow! I didnt relize a small truck like that can handle a plow! I only do residential snow removal.... most have 2 cars in the drive so using my f-250 ext cab for plowing is not a option but was wandering about using a smaller truck..... can a small truck like a ranger really dig in?

You can put a plow on just about any truck/SUV, within reason of course. I don't think I'd run out and get a Kia Sportage to plow with.

Things to consider:

1. Can the front end of the truck handle the weight of the plow.
2. Are you going to have enough truck to push the snow. (Weight/traction/power/4WD)
3. How durable is the truck normally without the plow.

Just something to think about.

That Ranger in the pic actually replaced an older Ranger Dino had in the fleet. I think it's safe to say it can handle it....

Also, Alan here, runs 2 Chevy S/10's with 8' Sno Way'son them!

The original ranger was a 95 and we kept that till we bought the 99.
We kept that till 99 and bought the new ranger. The front frame sections are different and they no longer make a frame kit for the 98+ Rangers. So we fabbed the 95 mount to fit the 99. The 95 had air bags for the front coils in the TIB front end, since the 99 uses Torsion A arms we installed load boosters. The 6.5' fisher blade that we bought wqas junk after 4 yrs of commercial use, so we cut down a ST-90 to 7' and installed that onto the MM head frame. The truck plows great and is awesome for driveways and narrow areas. However the tranny is weak, we put a new in at 38K, fortunately ford picked up most of the tab.
We also installed load boosters in the rear to help with the Airflow tailgate sprerader.
