Nope, Ford here....used though, so didn't go through any dealer. Good to know about Wiscasset vs. Casco Bay. Only prob. is if the truck needed to be towed, big $$$$ all the way up to Wiscasset.

You all set for the winter? I ended up passing on that account that we had talked about. Gonna focus on fertilizing/seeding.

We should talk, I sometimes have customers that ask about mowing...Ok, back to the thread! Ford always...

Bought a '91 F250 from the yarmouth school dept. back in '03, put a flat bed/dump from Coastal Metal Fab and beat the hell out of it for 5 years before it blew a cylinder....plowed heavily from day one with the school guys, then I pounded it in the winter and hauled 4 yds mulch/grass clippings regularly all summer. Getting rid of my 98 expedition with 256k...still runs fine. ORiginal exhaust still on it!
