    Slim I told you as soon as I figured out how to post pictures I could send you a picture of my sweeper to give you a laugh. Don't laugh to much though, the trucks in great shape for a 64 and it pulls it's own in producing income.

    Actually, I'll bet that beast does a pretty good job. I'd have to make several passes with my Broomer to accomplish what that does in one. Although, it looks like you have the same problem as I do... getting the pile off the ground and into a dumpster.

    When I drove semi over the road I always thought that the B-61 mack had as much class as anything. This truck puts me in mind of that.

    Here is an idea:

    Buy the truck, Buy a skid steer.

    Use the skid steer to load the stuff into the truck.

    Use the truck and skid steer in the winter.

    I'm thinkin it would be cheaper to just buy a vacuum sweeper.

    It would probably be cheaper to hire a bunch of kids. LOL
    Is it true that a U-Model Mack...the "U" stood for ugly?

    It's a R-190 International. It was a parade truck for a big asphalt company in the area. They went through the whole truck back in the late 70's. Right down to sandblasting the frame, rebuilt the engine (450 inline 6), and chromed a bunch of things. In the 80's it belonged to a sealcoat company. It was used for patching and that was when they mounted the broom on it. You would not believe the dirt that broom will move. It will take 4 inches of caked on mud and shoot it thirty feet. It also works pretty good with snow. I'm going to have to post some more pictures of my equipment so you guys don't think I only have equipment older then myself.
