That is me..
I dont have aim anymore. wish i did.

The question was , is the international a 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive?

How does it handle the plow, and is it automatic or standard.?

I just purchased a international 4700 2 wheel drive. has a hydroseeder mounted to the back 1300 gal, machanical.

Wanted to try and make some money with it this upcoming winter, was thinking working for the state, not as much money an hour, but something i can throw a driver in and make constant money.

I see that you have 2 pay loaders for snow. I myself am in the market. If you had to perches one over. What would you look for,size in gross#, 4x4, and what are some must haves in your opinion. Have seen quite a few this last yr. A few people like the 6 cylinder Cummings any comments ? any info would be appreciated

Niice.. This winters been sweet, having storms basically every week has been keeping us busy and making us $$.

As long as we went slow enough the X-blades scraped up everything! It helped out with using a lot less salt. So what's the product of choice up there- Straight salt? Sprayed salt (mag. or cal. sprayed like "magic salt") Sand/salt? And the pics look good! keep em comin'

We had to get it towed...and all new studs put in it...what a PITA!!!!! I went down to talk to them and they stood behind it and gave us a $400 credit to cover the tow & the repairs. I just didn't want to tell you the story in front of those guys...but they did stand behind their work which says alot. They must've not torqued the lugnuts properly. I wish i got some pictures...cause it wasn't pretty!!!!
Thats good to know. I was there for an inspection and alignment.

I see you take care of Lowes in Nashua. good for you. when i storm strikes u guys are in high gear.

Have you been able to keep it all in house or have you used any subs?

My dad has an Xtreme V also on his 08 Ford and plows for me. Very nice blade even puts mine to shame.
I also do subbing for a contractor in dracut on top of my plowing accounts.

Did you notice how many guys in this area have V blades this year compared to last. quite a few upgraded from straight blades.
