Ditto what Gene said. I just bought a Smith from Hartford Equipment last week. the smiths are bullet proof and very easy to maintain. I have have my older unit for 5 seasons and not one problem so far.
Johnny D, CALL MEEEEEEEE
welli got a price from hartford truck for the 1.5 yard electric downeaster for 2988.00 and a 2.5 left over from last year for 2500.00.i feel for my truck its going to be to big.its a f250 LD.i think im better off with the 1.5 what do you guys think????
Is either of the downeasters stainless? If not dont bother to buy them. get the smith electric stainless for just anotehr 600.00. In 5 yrs you will thank me. Also the State of CT DMV was wacking p/u and one ton dumps last storm with overweight fines. Seems we are in a fiscal crisis, and this the way to combat the deficiat. Anyway, the smith electric stainless is 200-250# lighter than the downeaster, so that will ley you carry more material as well.
don`t get me started on the state of CT.i use to be a truck driver.now i do landscaping and im sure u know why dino.i have an old ford LA8000 dump and i don`t use it anymore and once again im sure you know why.
