    No doubt, but I don't really want a deckover...

    I had my 550 sold but the bank said no to my LoPro truck idea and killed it. They will let me buy 550's but an actual 'dump truck' is no go. :rolleyes:

    The weather guys said last night we might get 3-6" of snow, I sure didn't believe them but woke up today and got to plow 8" of snow. On. May. 2nd. Seriously. They are calling for 1-2" overnight...

    Yeah, my brother is 90 miles south and all they got was rain. Go 90 miles north and they got like 18" of snow. This weekend is fishing opener, will be some not happy folks.

    It is crazy, I was in shorts on Tuesday taking out a fence row and thought it was too hot...

    Gotta love trailering in the snow. You only plow one account?

    I had 4 but 2 of the 4 decided they don't want anymore plowing(...it will melt 'fast'...:rolleyes:) so did the 2 and then went and helped another contractor at 2 of his lots. Trailering in the snow sucks. Also notice I still had some field stone in the truck from the fence row I took out. I'm claiming better traction on that one.;)

    I didn't get picture of the fence row but have a Kobelco 55 for the month, really like it and will get some action shots sometime.

    Yep, but if you knew him it's really not a surprise. I've been hearing bits and pieces about it but was told it is actually another companies dozer and was like new...

    Couple years back the bar owner that is there put a grader in that area.

    Figure I'll update some, got the box finally painted on the 550 and everyone keeps asking when I got a new truck. Updated the trailer to a Towmaster tilt with a stationary deck, has been real nice to set stuff there. And the big thing is rollin (slowly...) in a Takeuchi 130, it's an 08 with 1200 hours. It is a lot different than the 440/vts but like it.
