We could tell you that having enough tiedowns on your trailer is important, but we think it’s best to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth:
“Heavy equipment or machinery with crawler tracks or wheels must be restrained against movement in the lateral, forward, rearward and vertical direction using a minimum of four tiedowns” – DOT 393.130 Continue reading

Winter is coming which means sooner or later snow and salt are going to find their way into your machine. If you’re out there in the elements you need to be aware of trouble spots on your machine and one of the easiest ways to keep your equipment happy is to grease pivot points that see a lot of action in the snow.

Let’s talk taxes, folks. Specifically, let’s talk about investing money in YOUR company instead of giving it away to the government. The Section 179 expense allowance is something every business owner should know about since it’s the difference between a capital investment in your business and simply paying that money as taxes.

We’re kicking off Honda’s Red Friday Savings Event today which means from now until December 2, 2013 you’ll save up to $100 on Honda generators and $50 on the popular HS520 electric start snow blower.
Honda makes generators for every level – from homeowners to tailgaters to construction professionals. If you’re looking for something portable to keep you going when the power goes out, we’ve got you covered. If you need something big enough to power a job site, we’ve got you covered there, too. Check out the many different models and compare specs over on the Honda page of our website. During the Red Friday event you’ll save $50 on all generators up to 3000 watts and $100 on any one larger than that.
If a generator can save your behind in a power outage then a snow blower will save your back next time a snow storm hits. Save yourself the time and ache of hand shoveling and get a Honda 20 inch snow blower and save $50 during this event. Check out our Honda snow blower page for specs on those machines.
If you’ve got any questions about the Honda equipment we stock please give us a call at any of our locations. If you haven’t tried a Honda now’s the time – you don’t know what you’re missing! Continue reading
Last winter we used Fluid Film on all of our rental skid steer loaders. These machines go out for a full winter and sometimes we’ll get a machine back that doesn’t look so good. That’s why we decided to try the rust protection, which we applied to areas on a skid steer that get a lot of exposure – areas like the undercarriage and the wheels and axles. What we found out was that the time it takes to add Fluid Film to a machine does pay off. Snow removal is hard on our equipment and this helps keep it looking new and protected from damage. We use the stuff, our Parts Department sells the stuff, and our shop can apply the stuff if you need a hand. If you’re more of a DIY-er check out our “How To” video, starring one of our very own technicians:
Last week we got in a big preseason order full of Snow Wolf blades, pushers and tires. It seemed like every day we had more and more equipment come in! If you haven’t lined up your snow equipment yet then here’s a chance to take advantage of our preseason pricing on Snow Wolf equipment like the Ultra-Series plow and Wolf Paw tires. This special pricing is only good while supplied last and there are added discounts available if you buy in bulk so don’t wait until it’s too late! Also, don’t forget about Snow Wolf’s Mark Your Territory promotion going on now, which only adds to your savings and gives you a chance to win a $2,500 Snow Wolf credit. That’s a lot of ways to save some dough this winter.
