I recognize you guys because i have been reading the threads for a long time off google... just never signed up but now that i am a owner, i feel it is very important. Are there many companies in your area zfisher?

You buy the plow to have it and remove snow with it! Dont buy a plow to make money cause then it wont snow! lol! They say it takes 5 years to pay a plow off,Unless its like the winter of 2010/2011!

Whoever said that is a moron. I more than paid off my plow in 1 event. They're probably saying that because they don;;t want any competition.

Snow plowing is a very lucrative business. It's shady as hell too. You'll see....

Well then my local Fisher dealer, My father, my Grandfather, both my uncles and about 6 other old timers that graduated from mowing Fields And landscaping in the 60's too Heavy Highway Construction, Excavating, & Building Million Dollar Log Homes ; Must all be Moron's! My first plow I paid off in one season! It snowed every week, sometimes twice!. The back up truck I put a plow on it Dec of 2011 and it has snowed 5 times from that Nov. I dont go out and push unless there is 4 inches on the grd. If the customer wants me to come out for less its is by there request.
I didn't ask for help with Pushing snow I asked about lawn care and how to get a respectable bizz going. But ya know what they say; Opinions are like A** holes and everybody's got one!

Or spends more than 5k on a truck

Not all of us can bill out 6k per event with 2 trucks
