i love doing snow but like everyone said if you dont have seasonal contrats then dont make squat if it doesnt snow.
i had my first 2 plowable snowfalls this week, didnt even bother taking the plow truck just used snow blowers the first time knocked all them out in about 5 hrs (all residential)
today went out used the plow truck plow motor craps out 30 min in so had to grab the blowers and other truck great to have a backup thats for sure!
i dont fully count on the money it is nice and a huge bonus if we get a lot but if not im more the less bored just waiting to landscape.
for all the people sick of plowing or the headaches why dont you just jump on with another company for 70 + dollars an hour ?
