HAHA ! the nemo pic is great lol, and cool video as well, it looks like you picked up another skid loader, thats a nice new holland, you get a lot of lift hieght with those units, also i see you have a few under tailgate spreaders instead of your vboxs, how do you like them? any problems? With your stainless steel dump beds thats a great idea because your bed wont rust any way and you can haul more salt, that prolly saved alot of time during that storm. And as always great work and looking forward to the updates

I agree, "how to fail..." Is a must read. Simple concepts but they are super important.

Doing good...the dust has finally settled! We had 28" of snow last weekend...and had another nice little storm this morning. It's been a busy week...feels good to have a busy winter for a change! We are at about 50" of snow for the season...keep it coming!!

Did you break any axles or u joints etc.. and i have to ask, how in the world did you guys keep up with that much snow falling that fast, shewww i bet it was wild. Looking forward to the updates buddy!
We had a few break downs...but that is inevitable. We had to change a transfer case on one of our trucks, flat tire, alternator, also went through 3 or 4 plow solenoids as well. For the size & length of the storm it was expected. Im hoping for a few more big ones before the spring comes!

We tried our first tailgate spreader last year on our Freightliner & we liked it so much we purchased another on this year. We are planning on purchasing a 3rd on for next year. They are awesome. Such low maintenance, you can carry quite a bit of material, easy storage over the summer, and when you're done for the day you can just dump your salt instead of having to sit there & spin it out. I'm a big fan of them...
