Honestly, I'm really not into the idea of purchasing yet more equipment. Ya, its cool for about an hour, but I hate spending the money. However this is all being purchased by my company to cover our snow removal contracts. It was a lot of leg work, but I got out of residential 100% and this year we are doing all commercials with my main contract being a large Lowes (about 7 acres). I'm running 4 trucks, a skid, and the tractor. So with that said, the purchase of more equipment has become a necessity. Everything is used besides the 5500. Which is an 07 leftover and no its a 4x2. I'm putting a 10 foot boss straight blade on it. This coming winter has been an almost overwhelming jump forward for me, but it just kept falling into place so now its just been a mad dash to get ready for it. I still find the hardest part being finding good employees though! It seems almost impossible.

I've missed the last few updates, and all I can say is wow. You certainly have a great head on your shoulders to accomplish all you have done. My hat goes off to you! It's good motivation for anyone starting a company.

Most all the Lowes go through maintenance companies. It seems most of the lowes are going through several different ones, but we are not subbing our equipment on the site to another contractor, it is my contract.
