I missed it earlier in the forum I'm sure but which show is this? Are you going to visit the Timonium show? What about the Washington show coming up soon?

Chantilly show........no, I won't be at the other shows. I thought about Washington but I already get plenty of leads from the other side of the water coming in.

We didn't have much of a winter regarding snow at all. When a storm that would hammer us came along it would be too warm and just rain. Haven't run the numbers but after the $4200 for the plow + labor and material I doubt I broke even........just means next year I'll turn a dollar.

I have thought about a plow for my personal truck too........we'll see.

House was built in 1764 for a little bit of history.

Don't buy that tractor for use other than a tractor...........65hp and it can't move a pallet without wanting to flip.......much less lift it.

Parked the truck behind the larger stones for size reference. They'll be used, along with Endless Mountain Boulders off the sides, as (4) large steppers leading up to the home.

We're around 1400-1500SF on this project. Irregular, wet lay. (17) pallets of stone.......few plum pallets mixed in for color. Riser goes the entire length.

Oh yeah, that tractor would pull a plow, bush hog, mow and bail all day long.........just don't ask it to lift much! It tilted on me lifting 2,000 lbs out of the back of the truck. The load settled back in the bed though, otherwise over I would have gone.
