    Was just about to order a plow for it but glad I waited. The place I was going to use it for the most decided to use someone else out of spite even though it's going to cost them more. So I'm more relieved than anything, can just do the few residentials I have, the small lots we do and then not have to worry about spending 8 hours cleaning up one lot. And I don't have to put a plow on it and I'll have more time to work on my other projects.

    Seems like a pretty good deal to me! LB7s are damn good motors as long as you have the injectors done and have someone that knows what they are doing and installs the injectors in a clean environment.

    It's not that bad, I had to put a whole new frame under mine because it was so bad. Just need a good sized engine hoist or a skid or CTL and take the hood off.
