                      Adam, Your down fall is probably your compressor.

                      I was cutting a 12 yard dump box and the pintle hitch off a truck yester day evening and had to keep waiting for the compressor to build back up so I could keep air arcing and the customer was getting a little irritated with me standing around while being on the clock at $ 80.00 Hr.

                      I dont usually have that much continuouse air arcing and usually my compressor does fine but she was struggling last night.

                      I need to get the bigger hose on my truck as well as a 3/4" impact, I have the big & bad 1/2" TI Ingersorand impact but its useless on the heavy equipment.

                      Good luck Adam, As always your truck looks great.

                      The only problem with your truck is that its not red.

                        It's unfortunate that it has to be that way.

                        Nice looking rig!!!
