    Several Chevy and GMC pickups,as well as other plow rigs.Commercial account plowing , is a very good revenue generator.

    We mow and plow also: 1980 GMC one ton central hydraulics, Tailgate spreader, and an 8.5 Meyers. a 1985 GMC 2500 w/7.5 meyers, and a 1985 Chevy w/ Western setup.

    Im still trying to build my plowing business, as it is nowhere near the size of my lawn biz. I only have a few commercial lots. WE DON"T DO RESIDENTIAL, don't need to deal with all the idiots after the mowing season is done.:)
