    The Takkie dealer has trucks set up just like your International. I am more and more liking International.

    Stuve the international is a nice truck i had a few little problems with it but nothing crazy. Its got an awesome air ride seat it in. I hate the dam mirrors thou there always shaking all over the place. My ford dumps i feel are built heavier but you feel like your in a truck when your in the international.. Best truck we have i must say is the f-650 with the contractor bed that truck can take a beating

    Yeah, you just can't beat a wheel loader in snow plowing. I love plowing with the skid but when you get too much snow the skid can be a little helpless.

    I would say the same thing about the Kodiak, it is no frills. Once I get a 550 I would really think about getting a International low pro with a 12' contractors box, I think it could handle pulling a mini and skid but still get in tight areas. For the next year I think I'm keeping the Kodiak until I really need a tri, I am looking for a steerable air lift to get more capacity on the Kodiak.

    You working on a bigger dump truck yet?

    Been working on the bigger truck for a while .. Had a good price on a 2008 volvo left over 120,000 and it was an automatic just what i was looking for. Also got a good price on a mack.. Hopefully we can pull the trigger some time next year when we start going full blast all over again.. Stuve my hook lift truck the ford f-750 that was suppose to be an international but they wanted 5,000 more and they wouldnt match fords price so we went with the ford
