well I found my trailer i'm getting. i'm going sunday morning to get it. it's a big tex single axle. 6ft wide x 10.5 ft long. it's already setup how I wanted it, I wanted a 16ft tandem, but this will work for now. plus it's way below my price range so that's always a plus!

Thats a pretty good trailer, it's set up very well! So you don't even need to put money into it all that much. Now you can save up for a nice new trailer!

looks like i'm getting a plow truck! stopped at my grandpas today, who owns a junkyard. was talking to him for awhile about my business, long story short. if I can find a 4x4 at the junkyard and get it running/driving then I can just have one of the plows for it. or buy a 4x4 and put a plow on it. my only problem will be having to plow during school.. I don't know how I will be able to do it..

That trailer looks great man. I wish I could put a basket on the front of my trailer.
Yeah plowing's tough when you have other commitments. It's like being on call for any other job. You can make it work, just plan on not getting any sleep! lol. Last year I plowed for an apartment complex, and we would put in a 12 hour shift just plowing and sidewalks. Not to mention salting. This year I'm just gonna have a Earthway spreader and my Toro for snow haha

Yeah exactly. I went to the Ford dealer and starting talking about a new truck, however I don't feel like having to make such a large payment, and I want 2 trucks. I'm just gonna hold off till next summer and get an ol 7.3 Powerstroke or 6.6 Duramax.
And yeah let me talk to him about it.
