    Very nice sled! You have a lot of cool work, Congrats on some of the new equipment. How do you like your truck so far. Maybe I didn't read well enough but is it a 5.9 or 6.7?

    Thanks ATT, none of it came with out lots of hard work, this isnt the only type of work i do , but due to some privacy agreements i cant post pictures of some of the other type of work i have started to go after. Hopefully the next few projects I can .

    The dodge is a 2008 3500 with the 6.7 and 6 speed manual. I love the truck but am thinking of selling .i want to go back to an automatic because of how much driving i do.

    Thanks for the compliments,

    That's awesome it's a six speed though, the resale of that truck should be pretty good. I understand the auto though. I like having a standard in my little truck but plowing is no fun with a standard. If you want to give your left leg a break and you consider selling that anytime soon shoot me a PM.

    Is there anything you don't like about your Kubota mini?

    When you buy machines in bulk you get a bulk deal, and everything is always for sale for the right price...
