    First time ever posting pictures on Plowsite, so bear with me. Here are some equipment photos at a large commercial facility we take care of. These pictures were taken on February 6th where we got 7" of snow. Pictures here is a John Deere 7520 4wd tractor with a rear mounted 14' box, a Terex 860B backhoe with a 12' pusher, a Terex 760B backhoe with a 12' pusher, a 873 Terex loader with a 14' pusher and two pickups. The boxes are all homemade that is why they are red and the one funny colored yellow one. The two trucks are mine, one backhoe and loader are leased / rented for the winter months, and the 7520 and other Terex bh are subcontractors. Will post pictures of our other trucks and backhoes when I get time because they are scattered at different sites. Also, taken from a camera phone so I know they are poor quality

    Thank you! Terex is alright, no big complaints. Definately not a CAT or a Deere. They are pretty reliable machines though, definately a lot cheaper to rent too and fuel effeciency is great. Can rent a Terex b/h for about $1200 a month for 30 hours and $1400-1500 a month for a 125 hp loader. I have been really impressed with the Deere 7520. You would think pushing in reverse would be a pain in the rear, but it works awesome. Can push more and push faster than the loader or backhoes can, even going in reverse.

    thank you KMBertog Sounds like another 4-7" tonight into tomorrow morning. We average about 32" of snow per winter here in NW Ohio, and have got 25" so far in February. I have seen pictures of your equipment here on plowsite, and you have some excellent looking equipment and looks like you run a first class comapny. I will try to get some more pictures of our Case backhoes and other trucks during the storm.

    Where at in NW Ohio? I used to go to UT for a few years. I sure do miss all of the snow. We've had about 30in total in Cinci this year and we are probably done with snow.

    Fulton County. I am about 8 miles south of Michigan and 15 miles East of Indiana. Toledo is only about 40-45 miles away from me to the East, just hop on the turnpike.
