    I have about 50 accounts on the Illinois side of St. Louis and want to expand. Would it be a big risk to invest in snow plowing?

    If u have the capital to invest in the plow and any up keep during the winter and if u have the accounts lined up to pay for it then yes I would do it but.

    if you know you are capable of doing it then go for it
    But also dont do it if you only have 3 or 4 houses!
    But if theres enough and Once again they are lined up go for it!
    Once i did a couple houses that were like 15 mile out the way it was horrible i hated it!
