Its definately worth the hour drive. i went to the first show and it was really good. im planning on going this friday night. the show has a ton of plow trucks, sanders, lights etc. anything relating to trucks it will be there. A lot of local plow installers have booths as well as the big truck dealerships and such. you get to see a lot of the new products.

MMMMMMMMM

Now if we could put a plow on the front, we could use the heat from the Jet blast to melt the ice and dry the lots.


Rate : $15,000 per minute ( Jet Fuel is very expensive)

Just got home from Hartford show

Well I just got home from the New England Truck Expo in Hartford.

Great show, lots of fantastic trucks,

OH BOY DO I WISH I WAS WEALTHY!!!!!!!

Lots of really nice things there. I particularly like the Kwik Loader for Pickup trucks... saw one outside that had a western spreader on it....

I am not a Ford Mand but the really sweet looking Black Ford F650
Dump with Diamond Plate side extensions.

I would buy it If I could afford it.

Saw a new Chevy/ GMC 4500 there, dealer says 4wd in 2004

Lots of sweet looking Petes and KWoppers, a few Sterlings

One really neat HUMMER with a Fisher X Plow on it from the Hartford Equipment company sweet plow vehicle can be yours for a mere $110,000 or so.

Curtis Plow was there ( NO relation there) Never saw one of their plows up close and personal before. It looks pretty stout... and If I bought a plow and a Curtis spreader, I could save some money on lettering my truck
:p LOL

ALL in ALL was a nice show, didnt see a Whelen Dealer there, but there were other Light companies there and the LED lights look sharp.


ONLY ONE THING WRONG !!!! I FORGOT MY CAMERA :(

yeh, that kwik loader product was really nice. It would come in real handy especially for that neat spreader stand one they have. That black f650 did look really good. i think the diamond plate sides really add to the effect. Got to sit in the new 4500 seris chevies. Looks like a real nice truck, and probably would be great to plow with. i didnt see the whelen booth either, usually they are there every year. there were a few less vendors then last year, but overall a good show. I think snow was supposed to post some pictures, cause i forgot my camera so hopefully he took some.

Got back

Well i got back from the show and i was highly impressed. Got a guy hooking me up with a good deal on a pressure washer. I took about 20 pics of all the snow removal equipment. I will try to post them this week. the hummer was awesome with the x blade on it. Didnt see whelen either but Nova is pretty good i hear. I wish i could have a toy box full of those trucks from the show. I was so anxious when i saw Suzio York Hills brand new KW cab and chassis on the lift for a company (i live down the street from their Headqaurters). It was beautiful all shinny and freshly done in graphics.

ohhhhhh

Oh by the way I had a looong conversation with a woman who works for Southford Truck Equipment. And she was very interested in Plowsite.com i told her to check it out. Maybe she will get them to put up a sponsorship and some money for the site.

Pics please

Jay,
You gotta post those pics soon man I really wanted to go, I was behind on lawns and couldnt make it. We did 14 lawns in 6hrs with an hour of cleanup and then i ended up in the ER. Took a few hours there so i missed the show. I really want to see what was there.
