    haha! seal coat on everything! that's funny.... We have had 2 really good storms but I just got my truck last week.. Darn! Anyway, got it ready to go.. it's a 2003 f350 with a Western pro 8 ft. It's just killing me seeing it sitting there! hope we get some more snow.... more snow is good for the spring as well because all the flow to watersheds and what not right?

    you just jinxed us! The number one rule with a plow is never cry for snow!
    You buy the plow to have it and remove snow with it! Dont buy a plow to make money cause then it wont snow! lol! They say it takes 5 years to pay a plow off,Unless its like the winter of 2010/2011!

    Whoever said that is a moron. I more than paid off my plow in 1 event. They're probably saying that because they don;;t want any competition.

    Snow plowing is a very lucrative business. It's shady as hell too. You'll see....

    Well then my local Fisher dealer, My father, my Grandfather, both my uncles and about 6 other old timers that graduated from mowing Fields And landscaping in the 60's too Heavy Highway Construction, Excavating, & Building Million Dollar Log Homes ; Must all be Moron's! My first plow I paid off in one season! It snowed every week, sometimes twice!. The back up truck I put a plow on it Dec of 2011 and it has snowed 5 times from that Nov. I dont go out and push unless there is 4 inches on the grd. If the customer wants me to come out for less its is by there request.
    I didn't ask for help with Pushing snow I asked about lawn care and how to get a respectable bizz going. But ya know what they say; Opinions are like A** holes and everybody's got one!:drinkup:
