not even a whisper of a treatable event as far as I can see out on the weather channel. The weather service we use says they predict 10-15in for the season. I highly doubt that we come even close to that number

10-15" for the season?? Ouch. We could have that by Xmas.
You pull the trigger on that Smith Vbox spreader?

Craig likes snow more than he likes tile. Not a bad thing.

Can you imagine to opposite? You push snow 50 weeks a year and when a pallet of tile gets delivered you exclaim, “The tile has arrived! I get to put down a floor!”

That would happen in a parallel universe.
I had a 49hr event last March. I thought it would never end. I was ready to have my mail forwarded to my truck. At about hour 35 I had forgotten what tiling was like.

There are working on freight. They can find a good deal to get it down here cause I only need the one. I got another guy that is looking at buying 2 so if he can get his act together I will have a easier time getting them down here. However at this point I am going tell them it is what it is. The alternative is buying a buyers salt dogg it would only be $200.00 cheaper even with the freight but Smith is such a better built spreader. They gave me a smoking price on the spreader itself. The freight is what is killing me. But I would rather spend more money knowing I am getting a higher quality piece of equipment. I am half tempted to order 2 and sell one of my gasser and be done with it. I am going to call them tomorrow.

You can't beat the Smith's. Just better quality all around. Our mechanics like doing the maintenance on them. Very easy.
I know guys that run the Snow Dogg's. They either love them or hate them. No in-between.

they sell the shit out of the buyers here but the only people I know personally that run them are area managers and assistants and they don't salt anywhere near as much as the routed guy so they really aren't tried and true in my book. My assistant last year bought a brand new poly w/auger that piece of turd broke like 5 times and he is thinking about buying another. I am like WHAAATT??? if I buy something brand new that shit better not break down and if it does I sure ain't buying another no matter how much cheaper it is. my goal is to convert my stainless spreaders to electric. I got all my parts but no extra spreaders to play around with and all the other spreaders have new motors on them so I don't want to fix something that ain't broken as the saying goes

I plow just for neighbors. Everything is within a 2 mile radius.

We needed a third for our weekly plowing addiction recovery meetings. Bring cookies.
