So how did you get the snow off with out managing to damage the field? Leave the bucket up a inch or two?

Sorry think its kind of neat that you guys got more snow in about a week than we've got in this season, lol. Its great when we get a bigger snow fall (8-10+inches) and everybody starts to freak out. Get a lot of one time push's in to home owners coming up to you while filling up.

At first we were going to leave a couple inches for fear of damaging the field but I tested an area and it worked just fine running the bucket, slightly tilted, directly across the surface. Everything was fine so we went ahead and stripped the whole field all the way down to the turf.

some nice plowing Todd. I had a bobcat for the weekend when we got snow down here. Really didnt have any luck in residential so i had valley sub me and a buddy out. worked out alright, except for the fact that our machine broke down on the second day so we lost all that money for that day. dont know how you run bobcats, ours was a pos.

PM me man if you think you might need help over the summer. I love working for valley but im doing stuff ive been doing since i got in this business. Im really trying to get into hardscaping and some tougher projects. I hope to one day open a biz in richmond so im trying to soak up as much info as i can.

The 190 has a snow bucket but was on a friends machine. In the picture the 190 actually has a 250 bucket on it. Besides, you only want to be so productive hourly or else you need to go to per push rates.
