    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

Sorry, I don't know of any new snowblowers, just had a question for ya...Is that honda a hydro? I used a big hydrostatic honda snowblower last season and loved it. It is nice having an infinately adjustable speed control, like hydro mowers have.

Snowblowers, Truck mounted

Looking for anyone with experience using the various truck mounted snowblowers- Hanson, etc. Have my own businesses to do with limited room for pushing snow. Seems blowers would be the answer??

I've never used one, but a friend of mine who does snowplowing got a hanson truck mount snowblower when Tesoro Petroleum had an equipment auction. The machine has 7 hours on it and looks brand new...he got it for $1600.00 He stole that thing and if I would have known they had one for auction I would have bid a few grand for it.

Oh well, I'm glad somebody gets good deals

Thanks Chuck and Mountie!

Mountie, We should be getting snow here by the middle or end of october and I'll report what Jim thinks of his Hanson...in fact I'm sure he'll let me try it out, we swap equipment back and forth quite often.

OK, thanks for the reply- if we buy a Hanson or other unit, we'll post the results. If you know of any others to consider, I'd appreciate the mfr's name. Western used to build one but I can't seem to find it on their site.

Well, Jims Hanson worked great but he wouldn't try it until we had a layer of ice over the gravel driveways around here. It wasn't as fast as plowing but it would be great in a place where you didn't have a lot of room to push but you did have a place to blow.

I'll post this link to a guy who is building a truck mount blower and selling for less than Hanson.

I hope the mods don't get mad because I posted this so many times.

AMEN!

This guy's mentality....

FAST...
Abbreviate whenever possible, and then some.
NEVER, EVER, look back.

I guess you didn't see my post about reverse lights. Under that topic we covered all types of utility lights. Talk to me next time you see me, but I'de say that you could pick them up at medallions in Port Chester, Wal-Mart, NAPA, Cabelas, and anywhere else that sells autoparts. :gunsfiring:
