    GLS, I apologize if you have already answered this, but, are you planning on flatbeds on the 2 new dodges?
    I just bought a new quad cab chevy and thought of doing something like you did, but it's the shorter bed(6.5' I think) don't know if that would be worth it...

    Ps....Wanito...go zspray!

    Love the z-spray. I feel that the z-max is an excellent all-around machine. Agile enough for smaller properties, big enough for large commercial properties. Holds a lot of fertilizer and chemical. I greatly prefer a full spray boom versus the outward spraying nozzles. I use the auxiliary hose reel all the time, a coiled hose is inferior (have the coil hose on an auxiliary tank). We also use to spray fungicides that require 1gpm, which we can do with the 7gpm pump. And true zero-turn.

    It really comes down to what your usage is, but i'd highly recommend the zpsray.

    On the 2012, no. That one is more of a personal truck, we don't normally use for work.

    The 2015 maybe. When we get rid of the '02 gmc, we will need to decide whether to buy another shortbed truck to put that flatbed on, or to sell as is and buy another 8' flatbed. If the GMC had an 8' flatbed, we probably would move it over right now.

    No instagram, this is the only place I post.

    I'll call this the '2016 Update':

    No big news. Finally made the switch from bagged to bulk salt. We're using clearlane treated salt, seems to work just as good as the de-icer we were using in bags, with a significant cost savings.

    Winter started out OK with plowable snows the first 3 weekends in December. Now nothing. I really hope it picks back up again!

    Here are some random shots I pulled off my phone.

    New Boss v-box. Went with the new 6.5' model so I can keep snowblowers up front.

    Here was an early spring project. We were able to start at the end of February.

    Another project we did late summer. Replaced an old railroad tie wall using Rosetta stone.

    The billy goat did most of the digging.

    Did you form those steps with a mold?
