Yeah those Duramaxes have tons of power, I had a 6.0 a few years ago and had to sell it for the diesel sucked up gas and the power was decent, but not like a diesel. Those fuel prices aren't to bad we are down to $2.19 for gas and $3.39 for diesel!

Thought i should throw up some pictures of my snow setup. First is an 8'6 boss Super Duty blade for the red diesel, then we have 3 honda snowblowers, a honda atv with a blackline plow and a salt spreader. I fit the atv and blackline plow along with a blower and the spreader all in the bed of the truck and the boss plow hangs from the front. This all goes on the diesel. The second setup has shovels and 2 blowers which my brothers operate when doing my accounts. I'm in the process of fabricating something similar to my leaf loader bracket on the back of the trailer for a snowblower. It will be low enough so i don't have to take the bracket off when i take the quad off, but high enough where it wont hit anything low to the ground. I'll have pics up of that soon too. Enjoy.

i hate snow, but i have just as much stuff for it as you! I love using my ATV to clear sidewalks, i have never seen a cab, so now i have a mission. did u know you can get a salt spreader kit for that walk behind spreader, i got one last year, it restricts the spread width, and can be folded out of the way for ferts, or whatever you spread otherwise.


Nice stuff, have fun plowin!

The cab was bought on ebay. They have some for 280, some for 80. I went with the cheaper one. I figured if it rips or tears up, its not 280 down the drain.

Everything looks really nice!

So do you put the plow on wheels and push it around?

Dump Trailer

If you don't mind me asking what did you pay for the Bri-Mar dump? That is exactly what I want to get.
