    Still waiting for some snow to push here in Central Minnesota. So I got everything ready and took a few pictures this afternoon. Enjoy!

    Dodge Dump is a v10 first year with a plow see how that work out. Got the trusty Ford 7.3 and then my daily driver dodge diesel 5.9. New shop that we built this past summer. 42 wide by 56' deep with infloor heat should be great to work on things in the winter.

    Don't know what you had before but it sounds like you have a building that will make you very happy.....especially when it's 10 degrees out and something breaks:nod:

    Nice equipment and nice shop. How do you like them XLS's?

    35" deep and 32" high
    expanded metal at top so the cutting edge can easily be seen
    made of heavy duty 1/4" steel
    3/4" x 6" cutting edge
    10,000lb D-ring on center of bucket for easy access to loop a chain
    steps on both sides of bucket for ease getting in and out of the skid loader

    So far I am happy with the XLS. The plow is fast for large areas but is heavy and not meant to open up difted roads, will push the truck right in the ditch.

    Got all the equipment out today for some pictures. This past year I have sold off older trucks and replaced with newer ones. Bring on the snow...
