I would say closer to 30! That is long! But pics look great, you got all the right tools to get the job done!

Yea, its a great truck. I would have went with a reg cab d-max, but i use the reg cab for residential and the new diesels need highway driving to clean out the dpf.

Well, the truck itself is 22 feet long. The plow i guess would be another 5 feet? plus the tailgate is down which is another 2 feet, pluss the snowblower mounting bracket is out another 3 or so feet from the tailgate? I would say around 32-33 feet?

I never use all the same tools on one single account. Meaning the blower never gets used on the atv accounts, nor does the atv get used on the blower accounts. My main goal is to clear all the accounts of snow first, then go back and salt (on the large accounts). The 3 very large accounts are within 3 or 4 blocks of eachother so i ride the quad to them (so i bring a shovel to clean up a bit and no spreader/salt). The other 4 smaller accounts i use the blower on and salt those as each one is completed. Its a pain to load and unload the quad on the pickup. It takes me about 15 minutes to load everything correctly before i head home.

Oh, and this is my own single operation.


Any other questions... just ask...

going up and down is the easy part lol. I have to take the plow off before it goes up and down, take the snowblower off before the atv goes up/down, strap everything down, load the spreader/salt, wrap the atv cab in a mesh tarp on the bottum so the sides dont unzipper on the highway. I only do this once before the snow, and once on the way home, so its not THAT bad.
I thought about using the dump trailer, but moving around with a 12ft trailer and a long truck with a plow hanging off the front in the snow won't work to well lol

Too bad there isnt a spot near by where you could built a little ramp and leave it during the winter so you could just drive up back up to it and drive the quad off.
