Nice truck. Super hard to find in great shape like yours.

They hold up very well and will provide you with years of good service.

Going to string a plow off it this year?

What problems did you run into when you where plowing, and going to school. I want to plow(I'm still in high school), but my dad keeps trying to talk me out of it. Did you pay that truck off or do you make payment, if you don't mind me asking

It was hard to get good customers when I couldn't promise there driveway would be clear in the morning. I found that like mowing when you get bad customers you don't make as much. There was to much "Oh can you just come when the storms over" type of stuff. I still owe about 4,000 on the truck.

so how many people did you plow for when you where in high school, and how far would you travel to jobs?

"so how many people did you plow for when you where in high school, and how far would you travel to jobs?"


I had seven plowing customers and they were all within two miles of my house. Having such few customers is another reasone I didn't get a plow for my new truck.

Plowing was alright I just wasn't making enough money to buy another plow. You should go to plowsite.com for more info on plowing.

I love plowing. Right now I use my dad's truck and do all the plowing for his stores. Takes me 5 hours but I'm slowly trimming it down. As for conflicts with school. I haven't had any trouble. Just get up earlier or stay up later to plow. So far though every time I need to plow the schools are closed. Worse comes to worse a note saying you were sick is helpful. :rolleyes: To find out more info check out plowsite. There is a ton of good information there and the guys and gals are very helpful.
