    hey 4x4....i see your from Fargo, as well as I am... I also push snow in this town and see your must lease the 924s from Butler....We run 7 payloaders with avalanches, 4 skidsteers, 2 pickups, a sander, and two sidewalk sweepers with cabs. Get a hold of me if you ever need to purchase a avalanche... i am now the local dealer...and also we are using a new ice control product this year....safer on concrete and plants and goes down without sand. It also has a lower melting point than rocksalt.......last year with the ice storm, we didn't get anywhere using sand and rocksalt because of the melting point....

    Sounds like the SD DOT. About three weeks ago had some freezing rain, iced up the overpasses and bridges. Anyway the accidents started to occur. Highway patrol requested sand, a trooper and car "almost got smoked" at one of the accidents. The 3:00 AM call to DOT "Uh we don't have any of the equipment set up yet" The DOT called out the overnight contractor.

    Hey, its good to find someone from the same town on here. Yes we always rent one of the loaders from butler. The one with the snow bucket we own. Last year we where suppose to get a larger one, but they kinda screwed us on that. We are suppose to be getting a 930G next week, and hopefully a bigger bucket then we got last year. A pusher would be nice for a few of our lot, we've thought about it, but havent acted on it yet. We used alot of sand and salt on that ice storm last year also. I think it took us about 3 times as long to compleate the push, casue of all the spinning. Altho it was a good storm to start off the season. So what company in town are you? Just wondering casue you say you are the dealer for avalanche. You can probably figure out from my profile picture what company I push for. Well keep in touch.

    What is it that you are using? I guess we finally did get the ice gone, after a few storms last year. Im not sure where interested this year, we just got our stock pile of sand/salt last week, and we got alot, lol. I like the 924s, casue of the single arm lift, I think there is more visability there. as far as butler goes we have been happy with them, just that last year they dident want to swap for a bigger bucket. I dont know what there deal was.

    Don't need trackin' snow when they're down after one shot! :) And it's best to be sitting in the stand AS it's snowing...not only a beautiful time to be there...but the deer are usually moving around pretty good.

    Badluck...fluff you! BWAAHAAAAAHAAAA!!!!!!!!! :D

    All 3 of my plows are out storage, cleaned up, serviced and ready to go. Hoping for a better year here in NH than last year.
