Brad. Is that Honda from Craigslist? I saw one just like that on Craigslist for 500. Dude said he had a zero turn or something. Would have bought it except it's the end of the year.

how does the milage fair on the dump? i am looking into purchasing one, but dont really need a disel, just hualing mulch, stone every once in a while, probably wont put more than 6k miles a year on it.

also, what type of milage you see when plowing? i have the same setup minus the dualy and dump. 07 3500 vtech. but in two years of having a plow and spreader and have gotten no snow or ice!

Just looking for input!

yep! He came down to 450 probably would have came lower but I wanted to be fair the thing looks nike it was never used-even smelt new when he fired it up. REal nice guy and I could tell he kept his stuff maintained he showed me his cub cadet zero turn he brought and it was mint!

Rough guess I would say 100 per year on each. It was probably higher back when they were all I used one is 6 and the other 7 years old I believe so I would say both are over 1000hrs

yeah thats about all the miles I put on mine this year. I never really figured it out but I think its only 8-10mpg. I could use the diesel for the hills around here but the gas did its job this season

what are the dimensions of that garage your doing maintenance in? Can you fit the duramax in there, close the door and still work on it? I put an addition on my 25x25 shop that is about 20x30, the doors are on the 20' side and my truck wont fit it there, literally 1 foot short. Now we are getting a dump truck, and well lets just say someone in the family doesnt want it in the driveway and i dont want to buy/rent a peice of property.

I believe its like 25 by 25its a tight fit but it will fit in there yes dump fits to but barely because of height

Been working on trucks etc getting everything ready for winter-changing all oils tranny, engine, diffs, transfer case etc, undercoating and so on. Few pics of the dump put new led taillights on got new tires on the back, brakes all the way around.

Looking good, I had thought about sending out some cards for the holidays, but I decided against it once again this year. Maybe next year...

Take a look at these. I've been using them for the last 3 years or so. Their a little expensive but its nice to do something once a year. Inside you can customize what you want written. I have something along the lines of thank you for your business (there are several to choose from) and also wishing you and your family a merry christmas and a happy new year. None of this happy holidays bs.
