I'm just started to get ready
I'm currently makeing a new wiring harrness.
My old one was in rough shape Melting and Burning Of Wirings Not good (By the way always check your grounds)
After that done I'm Building my salter controllers.
Then I will be ready, for the next brake down
We're pretty much ready. Just need to change the fluids on both plows and pumps. Spreader motor needs rebuilding but other than that, just gotta check wires and connections. Didn't get any use last season so nothing broke or torn up.
just gotta hitch it up and bring it outta the storage garage and check the fluids and check all the nuts and bolts. Get the oil changed in the truck and get the new tires put on the rims. The snow blowers all set and i am sooo ready for a forecast of snow. I pray to mother nature to let the white stuff fall because
as the saying goes
there is no business like snow business like snow business i know.
Contracts are coming in as expected, and paperwork is all under control. Now time for the fun stuff. Change 2 sets of brakes on GMC 2500's, 2 sets of brakes on Jeep's, 2 sets of brakes on Jimmy's & bring 75XT into case for check up. After that check all plows for proper operation, and I am ready.
We have an unbeleiveable amount of work to be done and here I am on the internet...
I thought at one point that we were prety much on track, but with all of the bidding and customer service type work just to get accounts and keeping track of everything, well, that's a job in and of itself. My partner and I spend at least 45 minutes on the phone almost every night...
Then we get to working on the trucks and it seems that the more you do, the more there is to do...
Anyway, isn't that the way it goes no matter what? We'll be ready one way or the other so bring on the snow!
Took the 3500 into the shop last week to have all the fluids changed, brake job and all-over checkup. Found a couple of seals that were leaking and got it ready to go. The 1500 is still in the shop where my son works: replace the exhaust and tuneup. Should be ready any time. They just work on it when they get time. Checked over all the plows/sander last week. Hadn't gotten any calls from new customers for bids. Still had most from last year, but lost a couple plus wanted to add 2 or 3 more. Then last night came home to a letter from the Post Office asking for a bid and telephone message from a new resident requesting a bid on a 1/2 mile long private drive.
So if snow falls, I am ready... Let the games begin.
Now I just need some MagicSalt. My wife and I are headed to Poughkeepsie later today.
All repairs and adjustments complete! Plow painted for the season, just have to get it in for fluid service. Just in time for a freeze warning for the area. It should drop between high 20's and low 30's tonight. Now I just have to wait for Yellow freight to call for snow removal...wait it has to snow first. So SNOW!
