Putting up photos of my equipment. Nothing fancy, just basic, reliable stuff that works. And it's all paid for. And some of our shop space too.

paid for

I bet its nice to have all your equipment paid for!
I have enough seasonal accounts to cover the bills through the winter. I work for a farmer's co-op in the fall (sugar beets) to build up the savings account, and then I sit and wait for it to snow...or not.

trucks

Nice! I like the older trucks, I can't wait to get to the point everything we have is paid for and we can pay for immediately.
The fancy newer Ford and the Durango in the shop aren't mine. I share the space with a trucking co. Those belong to their drivers. I get two stalls in the summer and they get two in the winter, for when they are home.

my firstplow truck

1993 S-10, bought it in 1995 with 103,000 miles on it. Put the plow on in 1996, used it till 2013, had 234,000 miles on it. The frame was sagging, mechanic said it had to go. Best truck ever! The photos go from new to old.

We did put the plow on the white S-10, used it for 2 years. The 4 wheel was unreliable, going in and out of 2 to 4 wheel drive. I sold it to a buddy who wired the actuator in 4 wheel, as he is only using it for his rural driveway.

The visibility in the white truck was super, I miss having a little truck for tight places.

It was an electric co. truck. The guy who drove it, bought it when it came out of fleet service. So It really was one owner. There is a lot of back story to this.
He used to live just a block over from me when I was a kid. I had 2 friends that were huge Ford guys, he had another that one of them did buy.
A '69 F-250 HiBoy, it was burgundy and had a Warn winch bumper on the front.
Several people tried to buy the work truck from him over the years, but he wouldn't sell.
Another one of my friends bought the house they lived in when they moved, so kinda lost track of the truck.
His wife was the bookkeeper for one of my accounts.
He got cancer and passed, and she sold off his toys. She was glad I got the truck when I came to pick it up.
It has custom floor mats with his name on them.
It is at the body shop getting the bed sandblasted and painted, and we are doing the wheels too.
I am making wooden toolboxes for the box sides, and going to make a cap that sits on them to enclose the box.
I thought this was a one of a kind, and one Saturday we were leaving the house and a white one, identical to this drove by, and it was mint.
Gonna have to chase him down the next time I see him.

I had a 79 F150 SWB 4x4 single cab. 351m 4 speed with granny gear. That truck was awesome. The rust monster was taking it over, so I sold it.
Sharp trucks, but there were some design flaws in that front clip that lead to bad rust in key areas.
I'm glad my wife let me have this one. I may have to see if I can find some of those old photos of our trucks when we were kids.
