I'm patient. just depends what i have to be patient for.

They should be drill into the frame so the dump isn't just bolted to sheet metal. Thanks.

More productive. scoop, vee, angle and fit in tight areas. less snow spills off the sides if the blade is in the scooped position.

redmax how much do you pay per year for commercial plowing insurance, or anyone that wants to put how much they pay, just want to make sure im not getting ripped off.

and how much was youre stander.
I was out since 6:30am all day doing a roof for a relative of mine. It was a little family event for those who were tough enough to endure the bitter cold.

My plowing is included in the rest of my liability. i don't have a separate policy for snow plowing. i carry 1/2 million. Its a just under $1k a year.

Stander was about $7500.

Your not auditing me are you,lol

If i didn't get the V plow i would have gotten an Xblade SS. My dad has the 8.6 Xtreme V SS on his Ford.

Glad i'm meeting everyones approval on leaf cleanups.
