Hard to tell in this one but there's about 17 inches on the ground. Just broke through on the first pass here....

Those 1500's work pretty well. I like that first picture. Nice clear sky and bright out. Those are the nights I like plowing.

The first pic I had just broken into the lot through the almost window high drift. I backed up a little and hopped out. I did get stuck once in the lot in the second pic, I had to get a tug from a friend that was helping me. :realmad:

Stik - No one could find anything. I stopped by a local Fisher dealer who happend to have a 2500 HD with an 8.6 Western on it. He let me check it out to see if it did the same thing....it did to a degree, not as much as my truck but they still moved non-the-less. So, I said screw it. It's a truck, if I have a problem down the road I fix it or sell it.

Did you wait until it was done snowing to start to plow? I would have been out there 2 or 3 times.

So you want to go out get 50 grand worth of equipment or more. Have thousands of dollars in insurance. Spend time giving quotes. Then on the wim of mother nature hope it snows? Not me I like a return on my investment.

I look at my business like an insurance company. I get paid to be there when they need me. Also the customer knows the payment they have to make each month for plowing. I give all my customers the option seasonal or per push 90% of them take the seasonal. Over the years it averages out. Some years are better for me, others for them.

Ehhh.. I just like to bill them as I do them, but to each there own! I just think it is fair for both parties. I mean, I just picked up an apartment complex and they insisted on paying for the season, so yeah I will accomodate them. but generally I bill as I do..I mean it could work the other way I could bill for the season and it snows so much I lose money.

Tuscarawas county Ohio- no snow, but maybe some by the end of the week - work full time , but trade shifts to work 4p to 4a - have the cleanest lots in town !!!- deer gun season this week , front to come in late wednesday, early thursday - bill my customers per snow removal , lots quoted acording to size ( I like the "mom and pops"- pizza shops, beauty shops, convient marts, etc- in quick , out quick, cash on the barrelhead !!!) don't like gas stations that stay open 24 hrs !!! ( some joker always HAS to pull in front of you , with a full blade, right in the middle of the lot ... need a dash mounted death ray, or machine gun, LOL !!! 'Rude Dog

That's EXACTLY how I sell it.

I always wonder what people are thinking when every yeah they're looking for a new contractor, since the guy they had last year quit plowing.

I come in, tell them it's on a flat rate, because I've got to sit on my butt whether it snows or not, I don't have another job, yet they won't pay the flat fee.
