December is off to a good start for us. We've hit 2" triggers 2x, 1" 3x, plus a salt run only event. That's a big change from what our area has had the last couple winters. Of course, things can change quick. Hoping the rest of winter goes well.

No problems so far. Everything has been running well.

We actually haven't used the kubota yet this winter. We will if we get any big snows (snows have been light thus far).

Bring on the snow, hope winter is good for all the plowers

Glad to hear!

Models are hinting at a potentially big storm for us this weekend. Euro currently has us in 14". I'm sure the track will change, but i'll be happy with 2".

Going to pickup a used 810 tomorrow for a backup. I'm sure we'll jinx snow for the rest of the season.

We love them. You can't beat the expandable wings. Ours are all older units (ph1, before douglas dynamics bought Blizzard), I can't speak for the newer ones.

Always be prepared! We always try to have one truck loaded and ready to roll at all times in case of "suprise events".

nice. Do you do enough salting to justify a v-box type salt spreader vs the tailgate?
