    First year plowing solo and for myself. Doing driveways to help offset the cost of the new truck. Pray for snow.

    BTW, been lurking for a while. Lot's of helpful info here. Thank you.

    Very nice truck. I like how you will always have tools with you while you are out. Electrical to boot!!

    I knew you were form Mass before I looked at your location. I could tell by the truck (plow was a clue too). It seems that trucks look a certain way depending on the area of the country. We have the most boring looking work trucks ever down here.

    Just curious ,instead of trying to do plowing can't you try and increase your other business first?

    We have pretty good sized driveways in my town.


    I actually did that. That's how I was able to buy the truck. Still have payments though. I'm a winter lover, snow, blizzards whatever, I'm out in them. Just another way to try to make money off the truck.

    Most construction work dies off pretty fast when the snow flies. I work in heavy highway / civil construction and most of us make all our money March - Oct and go on unemployment for the winter. Most guys get pissed if they arent laid off before thanksgiving.

    Thats a really nice looking rig. Should really push some snow for sure. The only problem I see is backing up with that huge enclosed box on there. You'll just have to learn to be really good with your mirrors. hahaha

    Oh man...agree on the backing up a residential driveway.

    With the size of that thing, screw the sissy driveways and go for some commercial properties...that's where you'll make the jack !!

    Massive bump but whatever. Nice to see this guy is still in business as I saw this truck today and those plow mounts have definitely been used.

    That high box might be a pain with low hanging trees from snow load !
