Thanks man! Thats the first staircase we have ever done and I enjoyed every bit of it and the margins are good as well. I don't think anyone "makes" them. They are just cut that way at my supplier. We placed those by hand actually by skidding them on timbers and using spud bars. My mini skid was used to place them at the top of the hill from the truck and the rest was done by me and two of my guys. Having the international was great for that as we were able to show up with everything in one trip believe it or not.

If you plan on keeping the international for a while (which I'm sure you do) I would look into getting it undercoated. Since its an easy job for them with the rails exposed I guarantee its under $1000 and once you start getting into commercial snow and possibly salting with it, it will make all the difference.

NJ, Yes I do plan on keeping it forever as it only has 46k miles on it. It is one the list. I just did some custom fab work to it today as well as am about to have the beds all lettered up soon. After that undercoating it and adding alcoas are on the list for later this year or next. I really doubt we will be using it to plow or salt though as we really do not do commercial work. However, that truck is the backbone of my company so obviously I will be taking care of it.

We are swamped. Already have around 250 yards of mulch on the ground and have what seems and endless amount left to go. Next season will probably add a blower into the mix. Have around 9 pages of typed up jobs and start mowing next week so thats going to make it pretty crazy. Good luck with the bobcat. I have heared a mixed bag at best from those but it still beats having no mini at all! Everyone is after my stuff it seems these days haha. You busy yet?
