    Yeah it is long..........254" wheel base. Blue is my main production truck. The setup and capability of the truck allows me to really "move in" on a job with everything I need. I can even more so with the addition of the 4500 and a trailer if need be. The 4500 wasn't meant to be the main truck but when the first Blue was totaled I didn't have much choice. I was planning to sell the '02 Chevy 2500hd I've got with the purchase of the 4500 but its paid off and with what I would get for it........well, I'll just keep it for now. It's my plow truck anyway and if get into mowing etc that will be its use.

    The good thing is that I am pretty well set with equipment and can tackle just about anything I choose. Right now I'm just tightening up on everything like many other companies so that I can be ready for a slow season if that happens to come.

    I do still need a 18' flatbed/deckover trailer if anybody happens to have one.

    Is that on the same property as your shop? What are you doing there? Just clearing?

    We've been cleaning and clearing and cutting and burning and grading for weeks. Everything is rough graded and waiting to be finished with the T190.

    Shop will be built behind that shed (to the left) in the same direction going 60' long and 30' wide giving me (5) 12' x 30' deep bays. This is after I bring in a few hundred ton of 21A/CR6 to topdress the long driveway again and create about a 10,000SF parking area.

    I brought in the CAT 953 to do all the big soil moving. There was a few hundred yards of fill that the previous owner had trucked in. I did just as he was planning and moved it to the low lying area it is in now. Why he didn't just dump it there in the first place I don't know.

    Oh, you might have to get a new door on the 190 before you do that though! :laugh:

    No, the T190 is missing its door because of that. Busted out the glass...............I've got another $220 piece of glass waiting to go in.

    Looks like a great time, I'd love to be running that 953 on a job like that. How long is your off-season there? Do you get any snow?
