    Actually, I hope it holds off till after the 7th when I get the plow installed on the new truck. But a couple of little ones to "prime the pump" would be welcome.

    We are not really ready either

    We only have two spreaders up and running(out of 5) so if we get a real storm we are screwed!!!!!
    Headquarters did have us hook up all the plows before we left Friday afternoon!!!!

    I've always loved the Maine state GMC trucks... I don't know why more places don't use them for municipal work.

    Topkicks are on their way out...

    The Topkicks served the State well.Most of them are on their way to auction this spring.They are sitting down in Scarborough behind headquarters with their gear on now.
    The State has a new batch of Navistars with Automatics ready to hit the roads this spring.
    Doesnt make allot of sense to take the Topkicks out of service in the fall to be replaced in the spring.They say service wont be effected.NOT MUCH!!!! We have one six wheeler doing a 52 mile loop,how is that going to work at the 18 mph they want you to plow at?????:dizzy:

    Good Fair this year, had great weather and the crowds didnt seem that bad....They had a great turnout overall just must have hit it right.

    Seems the State is scalling down,UNOFFICIALLY!!!!

    The state has cut trucks all over and it seems they are starting to consolidate camps again.....Money issues I am sure....If you look at the roads you know it isnt because they are in such good shape...We have grass growing up threw the travel lanes and doesnt seem to be a problem with Augusta.....Live and learn!!!
