    Heres some pictures of my 1980 Ford cl-40 skid steer...i bought it cheappp
    but needed it right away for a job so i took 2 days to sand and paint it really quick..Heres some pics of when i got it home...and after i was done with the cheap paint job.few pics of it on jobs...making me money.................................................................................. this spring i hope to have it soda blasted and painted by a pro. and have the engine overhauled.
    this thing has major power and runs like a bear.. i made a temp plexi glass cab for it.will get pics of it soon
    were located in Waterbury,Connecticut weve had a good winter
    please let me know what you think
    bought it for 2k...paid off in 3 days.... runs off propane.was converted over from previous owner. almost 2 8 hour days off one tank. alot cheaper than gas
