    I was thinking of getting an ATV with a snow plow and putting flyers around my neighborhood to plow that way. Sure it could be fun and make some dollars. Anyone ever do this before? Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

    Definitly could be profitable as long as you have the weather for it,start up cost will be much cheaper to get an atv suited for plowing rather than a truck but you'll also get payed 1/4of the price.neighborhoods are tough expect ally if you want to stay within yours only say this because a majority of people would do it them selfs or get there kids on it:)you'll be lucky to get a couple houses on your block
    Your best bet would be to get some business type cards made up online " put them everywhere,' get a truck if you don't have one this way you can travel out of your neighborhood and possibly make this bigger than you think!
    All depends how you want to run your plow casually or full out!
    Good luck with the up coming season

    an ATV for plowing is like mowing the grass with nail cutters or maybe climbing the outside of the building to get on top rather than taking the elevator.

    By the time your done 'plowing' with an atv you could have finished cleaner with a snow blower and less run off.

    ( On the flip an atv is way more fun! )
