    Do you have pictures of your shop?

    I do. Most are not of the shop or property specifically- there are some pictures in this thread highlighting other things, but have the property I lease in the photo. I'll try and dig some up that are general.

    I don't want to take really specific pics of the area or inside the finished barn (the "shop") due to privacy reasons. It's a unique situation and I'm lucky to have it.

    Here's a pic inside the barn, getting the truck ready for snow last year.

    And some winter truck shots-

    How do you like those cutting edge wear guards? Are they worth the money, and do they work well? Do they affect the scraping ability of the edge?

    Thanks! Yes, I have NONE of my own accounts. I plow for a close friend of mine who runs a decent commercial landscape company. He has large commercials and we do a all the city streets for a town here in Louisville- probably the equivalent of 7 or 8 decent sized neighborhoods.


    I do. Most of the smaller stuff does not get a drawing. A rough sketch most of the time- customer's seem to follow the description, plant list and drawing pretty well. Larger stuff gets a more detailed drawing. Would love a program but the expense and learning curve scares me.

    They're pretty affordable- both sides for about 120? I got them direct from Winter Equipment. I think some of big snow parts suppliers have them for 140-160...

    They seem to be doing the job so far! You mount them just a quarter inch or so above the new cutting edge and let the wear of the edge meet the guard. So then they bear the bulk of the wear- They have carbide in them. So far (in what little action the plow has seen) they don't affect the scraping. They've worn in perfectly with the edge.

    Here's a so-so pic of the wear and how they match up after a few outings-
