    Hey guys,

    Been a few years since Ive done nothing more than read on here but I wanted to fill ya in on whats been going on.

    For those who rememver, in 2007, when i was 13, I had a Craftsman Garden Tractor with a 48" blade. That was fun, but now i'm 18, and equipped with some more serious stuff.

    Pictured below are my current plow trucks, both equipped with WesternwesportThumbs Up snow blades.

    Heres a list:

    1999 Chevy K2500 White, Ext. Cab. 195k Miles. Western Uni 7'6" w/wings

    2005 Chevy K2500 (Just Purchased) 100k Miles, Crew Cab, Long Box payup Western MVP 8'6" V. Sno Ex 575

    1995 F150 4x4. No plow, used for haulin blowers and shovel guys. Just purchased two new 26" Troy Bilt blowers to go with my Toro S-200.

    I will get some pictures of the trucks together, just been busy finishin up yards for the year.

    You are the man for being 18. I am closing in on 60 and I never did all of that. I like your fleet of trucks. Best of luck to you.

    It's nice to see someone so young take the iniative and work his a** off.
    Good for you! Too bad more kids/young adults would not take your lead.
    You should be proud of what you've accomplished....especially in today's economy.
    Nice looking set-up you have all the way around. Good luck this winter:D

    Looking good as always. Im liking the MVP. I hope you get to use it so we can see some action pics.

    I really wish I lived in an area that got more snow. My truck can handle a plow, I have the money for one but I cant justify the extra insurance expense as I cant really count on snow here. O well, looks like Im stuck as a sub doing sidewalks this year. It still pays well and Im covered so I cant really complain.

    Thank You. Appreciate it!

    Thanks. Ive worked pretty damn hard to get all of this. Thank You. Best of luck to you as well.

    What kind of truck do you have? Insurance definetly does affect the profit at times. I carry 2MIL for landscaping/snow.

    Glad to see someone my age doing so well!

    I know it feels good to work for what you have. Lot better than having it handed to you.

    Good job, nice equipment and safe plowing bud!
