    It was supposed to be a dedicated snow plow truck and backup truck. Turned out to be more reliable than the other truck, so it gets used all year for work, and my personal truck.

    I use my personal rig for plowing and for landscape/excavating duty in the summer. Hopefully this is it's last year with a plow in it.

    One truck, but is not a daily driver. Just plow truck and pulls the trailer. Usually hooked up to something. When it's not, it sits.

    Same here!

    We plow with our one fifty all winter; and then it is our personal truck thru the rest of the seasons.Just pulling a Scott Canoe all summer for guiding; But not uncommon to see it hauling a load of firewood up to the top of the rear window; on fall weekends! A friend has a new Chev work truck; and he and I cut firewood ; off his lots; for our lodge and he is always trying to haul more than us; But the Chev only has passenger tires; so that is his limiting factor. We will also put on 40/50 sheets of 1/2" chipboard[45-50 lbs each]??? And bring it home over 45 miles; of Route 6, all the time! Try that with your normal half ton; and see where your headlights point at nite!!!!:OUCH confused:

    Both of my trucks are driven daily and year round. The ECSB has both plows on it right now and is the truck i prefer to go grocery shopping with and take on long trips as it gets the best fuel mileage. The RCLB has the sander in it right now and the girlfriend has been driving that except when i need it. She drives this truck all the time and year round. She is a substitute teacher for several schools around here, none of the guy teachers give her crap when they see her rolling in with a diesel truck and a sander in the bed. It appears she is driving a bigger truck than anything they are driving Thumbs Up.

    OOPS, just realized i was in the Ford forum.
