    Well none of it is in the same place but we got...

    Two 9'2" poly VXTs
    One 9'2" steel DXT

    Two 10' BX10 push boxes
    One 8' BX8 push box

    Two chain drive VBX8000 2yd spreaders
    One auger drive VBX8000 2yd spreader

    One shows the height next to other protech brand boxes on the John Deeres.
    My niece in one of the John Deeres "she turned 4 in january and ready to work" :p

    One of the VBXs on a 2011 F350

    And the load of plows in boxes still.

    a couple more pics

    The white truck is our competition/replacement for one of the sites we were "terminated for poor performance" for in the end of January this year...

    We had a new machine with a 10' box, 75 tons of bulk salt on site with $900 in tarps, f550 with 11' plow and 4 yard spreader...

    The other site we did for them had the same, but about 25-50 tons of salt at any given time. They gave us no notice and all because the manager of one site constantly complained that we couldn't see blacktop when it was 4deg F to 15deg F for three days, but were unwilling to pay special rate for calcium or anything other than rock salt "which they requested over 7 times", .... no amount of salt will work overnight when your high is 14 and low is near zero, no matter where you live.

    We handled this account for our 5th year, luckily i knew something was up a month prior... we received a bid notice from a management company in Utah "were in NJ", for the very site i had the contract with for this season! Suprise!

    We took photos, videos, documentation out the wazoo , above and beyond, plus we have GPS logs from all the trucks that were on these two sites.... they're not going to know what hit them once the breach of contract lawsuit hits them.

    Sorry for those offended if you use tailgate spreaders to salt 200-350k sq ft parking lots LOL, all the power to you, just don't step on my toes :)

    Where we get salt they use 5-6 yard v boxes and use a normal back hoe bucket and it just fits filling my 2 yard v box but there are a couple guys who have small 6ft v boxes and the guy hates loading them, even corner bucketing them is tough. I see half the guys load go over the sides or into the bed.

    Have you ran the B10 on one your tire skids if so how does it handle it?
    I thinking for next year have one on site so when My skid gets the detail work done he can hook up to a B10

    There was a very happy Boss dealer somewhere in Jersy.

    If we have salt and the customer will take the billing, we'll salt when it's 0-15. It works, not the best but it works, just apply more - really about useless if it's still snowing though. A slight peak at the sun or even high clouds and the lot will get wet, sun goes down and put on your ice skates though.

    With the shortage this year peaking around the corner back in January, we didn't salt 6-8 times in conditions you are talking about, maybe even more.

    Wow, nice new equipment! What tracks do you run on your 323D CTL?

    Who was the company? I seen Lipinski on the box they are now Merit I work for them. Its hard to show black at those low temps. I was able to do it by putting extra bulk down than having traffic work it in.

    We have big and small skids and big/small track machines.

    The 320D "our lightest 6000lb JD skid" will push at least as well as our smaller "9000 lb" track JD 319D "essentially the same machine track vs wheel".

    the 319D will push a metal edge box fine so ANY wheel skid steer should have traction for a 10' metal edge box

    We have not that i know of, had the boss boxes on a tire machine yet. Our 332D "large skid steer tire", will manhandle any 10 box we put on it so should be no different than the boss.

    Standard JD ones that come on it "bridgestone brand?".. the 319d will eventually get polar tracks in a season or two and we'll switch over the 323 to the cat style with some more snow bite.

    Which company? the site? Merit contracts us for two accounts, a train station and condo complex... luckily that is all since they pay way late.
