Thanks! I'm definitely feeling you about the diesel, but the 6 leaker has left a bad taste in our mouth. We all know Cummins are a whole other story though!

I'm not exactly psyched to plow with my 8.1 because the fuel mileage
But its finally summer (kinda, its 55 degrees right now), why are we talking about snow?!?

Yeah what are we talking about anyway!?

Tell me about the fuel mileage of your 8.1? Towing?

Yeah I still work sometimes (every day) been super busy but not many pictures. I finished the retaining wall and sod job which I'll get a picture of because we do maintenance there too now. Did a clean up at a regular account and took away some brush. The trailers hanging out and some curvy stripes at my house. They looked better the day before when the sun was in the right spot.

Some shots of the field that I cut, with the deck all the way up, and very slow. Hard to tell the length from the pictures but it gets pretty long, and I just cut it once because the owners don't really care. And a commercial account from today. This is usually dead after all this heat. Still kicking though, 3 day heat wave for the rest of the week. Yay...

It wasn't as bad as I thought, I moved the mulch to the back, it was only like a yard and a half maybe. So there wasn't too much tongue weight, but it was still bottomed out on the bump stops. No brakes, or lights for that matter, because I have no 7 pin. I was just going up the road to finish my mulch job, it was a 60 second drive.

The Dodge is in for repairs, cracked window, bent bumper, starting issue, etc. Now we'll have it cleaned up and ready to trade in. My brother sold his 6 leaker too so I couldn't use that either.

Oh sorry it was an accumulation of things since owning the vehicle that were never fixed. Cracked window was just from a rock, starting issue just started recently. It has that Dodge mechanism where you turn the key and don't hold it. It just doesn't always work like it should, sometimes it keeps on turning over much longer than it should. Bumper was hit plowing, so we fixed it, then someone hit me again, so I just left it and didn't have it fixed until now.
