I also have used Cimato's (through Russell's Tree & Shrub), great stuff especially the black mulch. Does Cimato's sell on their own for pickup? I'd rather deal directly than having to stop at Russell's.

Just picked up the new truck - 1994 Chevrolet 3500 SRW 6.5 Turbo Diesel with a Western plow. Truck runs real good, body is pretty good all things considered, 122k. It's older, but I felt comfortable getting into it for $3500. Pics tomorrow after I clean it up a little bit.

Sounds like a good deal, some guys hate that engine, I think is a good engine just got to watch the turbo they are known for random failure. I might have a sprae at the shop and a tranny. I dont know if they are still their, last year when scrap went high we got rid of alot.

yeah a friend of mine has a '93 same engine but his has well over 200k on it and his turbo just blew. no warning at all. When I looked at the truck initially the first thing I did was take the intake elbow off and check the turbo for shaft play and it was really solid, so I'm not really worried. It does leak a little oil, I'm almost POSITIVE its the cooler lines, those are known problems with these trucks, so a new set of those will be on order soon as well.

as promised, pics of the new truck. I already got to plow some snow with it first thing this morning and its great! I spent the better part of the day cleaning it up. Some things to note: previous owner bed-linered the whole bottom half of the truck which is SWEET, newer style chevy rims, needs a seat cover, the trailer brake controller and plow controller need to be moved cuz i whack my knee on them HARD when I get out of the truck. Other than that I'm really happy. Just gotta remember to plug it in at night....forgot to do that last night and it wasn't too happy with me this morning haha
