Added another truck to the fleet. 2015 Ram 3500 cummins with aisin transmission, crewcab/longbed. The idea was to replace the old 2002 GMC (getting pretty old and rusty), but decided to plow through the winter with it.

Not sure if we'll put a flatbed on this one or not. I'd like to, but winter hasn't been very kind to us this year.




Had to do a little custom fabricating to get the old blizzard 810 mounted on this one.



We traded our deckover equipment trailer in for this tilt-deck. Deckover was just a little too steep to comfortably load the skid in the snow. The deckover is much safer.

Also picked up this mini tilt deck for toting the z-spray around.



We also set up a diesel transfer tank for fueling the skid, ditch witch, and ztr's.



We thought about mounting a permanent tank in a pickup bed, but didn't want to sacrifice space. This unit we can use when needed, store when not. It can sit on-site for snow removal using the deep-cycle battery.

Beats the heck out of refueling with cans. Plus, we had gelling issues last year. I'm hoping pre-filtering helps to prevent that problem again.

Rented this tiller for the skid. Utility company drove large bucket trucks into backyard when soil was saturated. Left not only deep ruts, but also high spots. Tiller did an excellent job of shredding/burying existing sod clumps.









I didn't take any other pics of the job, but got it graded out and seeded. Came out very well.

Always wanted a higher-volume bucket for the tractor, but couldn't justify one. We used the skid bucket on it this spring for mulch, worked great.




Fall cleanups. The ztr/bagger is a real workhorse when it comes to cleanups for us.





Pile was all collected through ztr.

Squeezing in a little vacation time.



I would prefer to remove this badge, but it would require body work to fill in as it is inset from the rest of the body. So to get rid of the chrome, we sprayed some plasti-dip on it. We'll see how it holds up.



A couple of fall color shots. Both are full-moon maples. They have some of the best color IMO.

Awesome! Love the new pickup and the shop. I'd love to find a shop similar in size to that in the next year or two.

Your yard and landscape looks great.
