    How’s the 550 working out?

    Hasn’t been crashed yet so that’s great! 10k miles on it. It’s getting moved to the back of the rotation for plowing as it seems it either doesn’t have a big enough transmission cooler or the wrong type of transmission for plowing, always heating up and don’t want to burn it up.

    That’s odd, I know on my 7.3 they had issues with the trans cooler not being big enough and they can heat up but I’ve never had an issue, I’d like to swap in a 6.0 one. Never heard about that issue with the 6.7 though.

    No lights on the dash? What’s the fluid look like?

    No lights and fluid looks fine. Temp gauge just starts creeping up after a few driveways says the guy driving it. So just not worth the risk when there’s other trucks that can be used.

    It does! I even added a magnet to it so it stayed with the mower. Definitely saves the back.

    Was out wrapping arbs... wet heavy snow had already taken their toll on them. Like everyone else, we’re WAY behind and looks like not getting back to clean ups anytime soon with the forecast. 03779D38-CE7C-4CC9-A8AC-52D046D82986.jpeg 151BA214-8E87-4DCA-B433-E3F8804D1DE7.jpeg E7BE595C-4D66-4B90-B212-26FAEE529F04.jpeg
