Well, we have both but less than 2 hrs on it, and its flat where we live... The only hill we mow is at our moms house... but no complaints, its a little scarier than a ZTR, and even a WB...

Well russel, today i was helping my friend with his eagle project and a director of grounds( who was helping us) drives an 09 chevy 3500hd just like yours it had a boss v plow but it had the d/a combo and it was green, but since we had to transport benches we were installing at different sites and i was asking about his truck and he noticed that i was in lawn & landscape service he said I'll let you drive it. I had to slap myself to make sure i wasn't dreaming, but it was asome !!!!!! that duramax is a quiet engine it drives and shifts very good I really want one now, but it was the best day ever today.

Yea, the rearend is real stiff... we didnt put the v box in yet, we are planning on sandblasting it, and rhino lininh the inside, and painting the outside... We live right by lake erie, and have a river running through Toledo. It a shipping thing there, so we are going to a place with mountains of salt... They load it up and everything...

Pics

Well, we mowed for a while yesterday, and i got out of the truck and looked at it... It was real shiny... I asked Ryan (my bro) if he washed it, he said yes. The other day him and his girlfriend were all at her parents house, but her whole family was sick, so he washed the truck... In the pic it has leaves all over it...

And then we were at a job, and our Brother-in-law pulled up, and i snapped some pics of his BMW 740i... Its a nice car and all, but i would rather have a 2010 Chevy 3/4 Ton, and a plow, and trick it out, and a 2010 Camaro... Yea, that thing was pretty dang expensive...

Then a pic showing some of the bad rust on the salter...
