Oh ok, I was just wondering, seems like your trucks always hold loads great! I have them in the rear of my truck and it is a night and day difference! Again everything looks great!

Yeah, they do work good. It beats having to put heavy springs on and deal with a stiff ride all the time.

you think that sk650 would be capable of carrying a 10' spruce? what about lifting it out of a dump truck bed?

10' is probably questionable. It all depends on how big/heavy the ball is obviously.

We moved a 9' serbian spruce last fall. It moved it but it was heavy.

I posted this one before, but here is a norway spruce we planted. No troubles with this one.

I'll have an update with pictures once I get a chance to go through them.

Had an early season snowfall today. Didn't stick to the pavement but did on the grass. I hope it melts off by tomorrow so we can get back to cleanups and mowing.
