    The yard was filled with some "green" today, so I snapped a couple of shots. Crappy cell pics, but you get the idea. Thumbs Up

    We haven't plowed at all this season yet. That tonnage was from sales and the one "event" we had. We also have two loaders that are on jobs not at the shop. And yes that's salt, not a pile of sand.

    you must of taken the pic of the cat before the rest because the door is not on and the spreader in the back blocking the window is there.

    Yes, the plow was just finished out of the shop so I snapped a pic of it. The door was put on for the season, and the last spreader was put on the 650.

    Nice freightliner and F-650. Do you have any close ups of them??

    I'll snap some pics tomorrow at the shop. I would imagine you are talking about the FL70, and not the larger tandem when you said Freightliner?

    I can't upload another picture, but there is a pic of the lw50 in this thread:

    Keith, they are Westerns except for the one on the skid. I believe it's a Fisher. I've used Western all my life and have them down to a science, except for my last episode which was an internal controller problem.

    The FL70 is a hooklift system. We run dumpsters with it and a mason body. we also have a box we use for our sidewalk crew at a development we do. We load it up with blowers and icemelt and leave it onsite for the winter.

    Nice equipment. Those plows are pretty sweet painted up like that.

    Thanks! We used to paint all of our stuff over the years, but have gotten away from it being it can be very time consuming. I actually had a couple of customers ask what happened to your green fleet? We started it up again as of this year, already been getting remarks. I'll see if I can find some more pics from previous years. Merry Christmas everyone.

    :eek:Seems a little high. But maybe I am wrong. I would think 10 is more of a correct figure. Not sure though. Nice setup though.
