    Yep, I know Precision...my husband used to work for them...they have bought up just about everything there is to do with oil up here. Nisku is a few minutes south of Edmonton, & the rest are south of here...so no ICE roads,just regular old ICY ones in winter.

    I don't know how much the rigs are working south of here, my step son was working for Halliburton & just got laid off. Most of the rigs in Northern Alberta & Northern BC are working, but I think they are not drilling anything new...not with oil at $35/barrel...funny how they used to drill like mad when oil was at $10/barrel a few years ago...but suddenly can't make money at $35...go figure!

    Yup, as Wildcat says there wont be any ice roads with Precision. Its oilfield service work, hauling whatever is required into the drilling sites on what would be equated to logging roads. Could be flat deck work, could be water trucks etc.
    With all the town names you mentioned its all relatively far south compared to Wildcats stomping ground! :biggrin_25525:

    You got that right Etosha, I would say my truck has NEVER been south of Edmonton...except for this weekend...I seem to have gotten myself ropped into taking a load to Vancouver...good Lord I haven't been there in probably 10 years!

    Wildcat, I have been driving in Minnesota for almost 6yrs. I read that you have a custom winterfront for your truck, what else do you drivers do to your trucks up there to make them handle the cold weather better. Also with all the new crappy emissions regs down here, do your trucks have the same junk such as egr's and dpf's? How do they handle the cold? Do you run a CAT or cummins in your pete? Thanks and have fun up there!

    Yep I do...don't use it when it's above 20 below...truck gets too hot! Alot of guys run a belly tarps...that goes from the front bumper basically under the engine to help keep it warm...right back to the back of the transmission...I don't tho...I have extra insulation in my hood...so I don't need one.

    I have extra insulation literally EVERYWHERE in my truck...in the cab, sleeper, the floor, even in the jockey boxes!

    Even tho my truck is a 2007, I was lucky & got a 2006 engine...it was built in Oct of 2006...But the guys I know that have new truck +2007 engines are crap...you couldn't GIVE me one of those...yeah they have all that new crap on them too...but they give nothing but trouble...just like you guys & in the far north where they run all the time...by the way...we don't idle at 1000 rpm up there...it's 1400+ most of the time...

    I have a CAT in my truck...550 twin turbo
