    Sup man,I got the usual stuff to do like change the fluid,but my spreader could use a new paint job, plow needs to be re skinned, today since its raining I think Ill take the electrical connections off the solenoid and battery and clean them up

    Too much! I'm finally getting our loader serviced and looked at for the few issues it had, serviced the skid steer last week but now has an alarm going off, pulling v box out and cleaning it up and testing everything, wiring up the 05 for a v box, getting a new plow on today, get other plows serviced in the next couple weeks, servicing snow blower's, ordering new shovel's soon and last but not least getting new tires on one truck. All that while mowing 5 days a week and getting ready for fall clean ups and giving bids. I think its going to be an early winter here.

    Hello everyone. New here. Just wanted to talk with some people and learn what they are doing about plugging their trucks in for cold weather starting. Timers and extension cords? This could be on someones to-do-list?

    I've managed to get most of my "to-do list" finished.

    I've changed oil in my plow, replaced the worn pivot bolts, new cutting edge and backdrag edge, got the cab and snowblower on the tractor, put new work lights on the front of the cab, changed oil in the snowblower gearbox, and replaced a leaking axle seal on the tractor.

    I still need to, weld up the skid shoes on the snowblower, put work lights on the rear of the cab, replace the back window on the cab, replace the blade guides on my snow plow, and wait for the white stuff to fall.

    I'm sure there's a few more things I'm forgetting.
