If you're hauling snow then January is off to a good start.

Thats what I was going to say. Kinda hard to get anything done with such a small truck isn't it?

Your better off with a rolloff box for hauling snow in easier to load and will come out without jamming up a tailgate. Even a highlift tailgate would jam up with those frozen chunks.

Most small wheel loaders you can road them no diffrent than a backhoe you just don't make any sudden movements with the steering wheel with a wheel loader.

Short hauls, by the hour. We had a 10yd truck running as well.

I am not going to by a tandem just for this, and I wont pay someone else to bring theirs.

We use to build up big sideboards to haul lots of snow but if you are by the hour it dosen't matter. At the one we had a 621 loading a quad and a single axle with big sideboards, the boss liked it because he was billing three machines and only paying two guys.

What do you like about the Artics? Is it the steel edge?

That would be good gig to get. Surprising though, you would have to be dang cheap for a customer to hire a 4 yard truck to haul snow at least here.

What is that loader you are using? Whats the biggest size box pusher you could put on that if you had 2-4" on a 100 yard push?

Thanks
