Spend the money on a decent snow blower, I use Honda's but I don't expect everyone to pay that kind of money for new machines, several used ones for sale at half price in great shape in my area.

If they give you crap, all you have to say is that nobody gets paid until all shovels and spreaders are returned. As far as legalities are concerned, they stole your equipment.

I definitely take the route of hiring on good guy to run a snow blower and maybe even have a second guy to take over the shift part way through.

There is an Old Blue Chair for each and every one of us, we just have to find it.

2015 Ram 3500 6.4l hemi 4x4
Hustler X-one 60" 3 bin bagger
Toro Proline 36" wb w/t-bar controls
Walker S14 36"
Honda 21"

Yeah...great idea. I'm sure a guy with enough work for 3 plow trucks and 7 guys on his sidewalk crew never thought to get a snowblower
