                      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.
