    As for the Springs, wow were mine sacked! With the new spring and inserts I can barely compress the rear suspension, which is making the reassembly into the chassis a little more challenging. I have also refreshed the custom spring rollers and "Adjusted" them to allow room for extra wheels. And I just noticed in the picture my slides say Yamaha! They are the Teflon insert ones and even with all the issues last year seem to be holding up real well. I'll see if I can snap a few Pics of the Front End to add to this. New Air Ride and all. GutZ

    Well then historically don’t expect much action that early in areas where trails rely on lakes rivers and swamps to interconnect.

    LOL.... But I need to support 3 sleds and a Red Rocker, If this works to my plan I can give this one to LongHair, Retire "Spare Parts" (the 600 etec) and get a Turbo 900 next year-ish or 25000 miles which ever comes later. But if you have some parts you don't need..... GutZ

    My new Mistress...from the beginning.

    While not a thread on sleds, I figured i would share with you all the project taking up every spare minute while not out on the road. The bosses have decided it was time to expand our operations from doing vacuum truck and pressure truck work and venture into the market of Hydro Excavation. Using high pressure water and a big ass vacuum to excavate for construction projects or utility repairs etc. My new baby arrived in the shop just 2 weeks ago. She is beautiful. 2018 Western Star 4700SB. 500hp with 6 Speed Allison auto trans. Double thick frame. Fully loaded power everything with A/C. She is gorgeous. Not much to see right now, just the basics. You know what they say...”big trucks.....big bucks” no exception here, Just the cab and chassis was a cool 170k plus tax. That’s naked. Nothing on it yet. She needs some modifications which we are doing in house before she goes off to receive another steering axle to become a 12 wheeler. Then its off to Levis QC to Supervac for the real construction. First order of business was to move the two rear axles back 26”. Talk about fun. This is some serious work which includes precisely measuring and rechecking before using the giant drill to pierce all those new holes for all the bolts. Crazy. The drill clamps to frame and uses air to pull it tight to drill(impossible any other way) you are not drilling this frame by hand. Well after many drill bits and almost 2 days of drilling holes. Step 1 is almost complete. Axles are moved back. Just need to re-plumb all the airlines and put tires back on after painting frame where we worked back there. Next, we will relocate the fuel tank, air tank and air dryer. Truck will leave for Quebec on a tow truck since the drive shaft is now too short. No worries that will be arranged by Supervac as they need to mount a transfer case in the center anyway. Few photos of the truck in the shop and the others are from the Supervac site. She will look similar to these trucks when finished. There may be many like her, but this one will be mine. No truck this big in the region here. No one has this near here. All in, will be well over 600k plus tax. $$$$$$$$ supervac site.... https://supervac.co/trucks-and-equipments/hydro-excavator/ And here......... https://supervac.co/trucks-and-equipments/hydro-excavator/zeus/

    With all the equipment installed have you calculated your gross weights. Sounds like it will be heavy. Going to be something special for sure tho. Don't let it take up your snowmobile time. As for our sleds we made a enclosed trailer for them a few years ago that is sealed tight enough to keep to everything out. Don, have a good summer. Please post finished pictures of your new truck. It's going to be a beast for sure.

    That truck is impressive and will be more when finished. The concept of excavating with a vac system is great way for exposing power lines to fiber optics. We have removed tons of filter media from filter chambers in water treatment plants in North and South Carolina over the years. Always amazed me the amount of material that can be moved with a vac truck in a day. And the different types of material. For cold weather use will the water tank be equipped with a heater to melt frozen material. Just wondering. As for the shop, that is for sure impressive. Only question I have is that green machine on the shelf your back up or did you get a new ride. LOL. Just kidding. Have a good day.

    Do you see it? Amen.

    I had coon dogs and one of the things my pardner, who was a dog expert, always looked for the size. His size was a silver dollar. Sometimes it was a little embarrassing when we went to look at dogs LOL. Best dog I ever owned had a huge one and he was as a baby to my kids, slept with them. He wasn't so kind to a raccoon. Great memories. Made a lot of money with him. Late 80's we sold coon hides for 28 dollar average. Cash money. Averaged 135 pelt's per year for 3 years. Plus sold mushrat's for 8 dollars apiece average. Almost 12 thousand dollars split in January in the 80's. That was a lot of money then. Lot younger then. Oh but the adventures we had. Looking back it was a great life for a few years. sure couldn't do it now. LOL

    Yup gorgeous week end but all came to a halt on Monday afternoon, big storm hurricane type blew in and took out a lot of trees, my neighbours stationary swing was picked up and thrown into the trees. I was very fortunate to have the tree beside my house to save the impact and possible lots of damage.
