    Hopefully it's like 14-15. That was perfect.

    Hasn't felt like fall till the past few days. Now the Extended forecast shows temps in the 70s for this up coming week. I Hope this warm weather doesn't last to much longer.

    It amazes me the number of accounts that are large and or high profile that still do not have signed contracts.

    Last 2 contracts signed today. All we need is the new Plowmaxx Liveedge to show up, and to get the new F450 set up and we'll be ready for some snow.

    Anyone in here have one of the VBX 9000 spreaders? We love our 8000's so that's the route I'm looking toward.

    Might be interested in a 3-4 yard electric v box of anyone has one in good shape used.

    Just curious if it has been the same for anyone else. This time of year I am usually just about booked for my residential route. With my phone still ringing about ten times a day from new customers looking for quotes. So far this year I've gotten maybe five calls per week! I'm hoping it's just the warmer weather, the Election, and the Indians being in the World Series.

    This is the first season I can remember that everyone has committed and signed by November 1.

    We're all commercial though, nothing residential.

    I have a few that are still twiddling there thumbs but about 90% of my repeat customers have returned there contracts. I send them out the second week of September in hopes they get it in before the season starts. I had planned on expanding this year and adding a sub contractor to do a small route. We will see

    8-13 Liveedge is here, on the machine and ready to plow.

    Now it can snow.

    More new ****...new to us F450 with central hydros and hydro under tailgate spreader. Excited to run hydros and not deal with the frustrations of electric.

    Looking to subcontract, westside Cleveland area. I would prefer commercial lots in good condition, 6-8 hours of work for an average snowfall. Fairly flexible with my hours.
    2015 F250, shortbed, crew cab. Western 8.5 MVP. Excellent condition.
    Thanks!
