    When I see them where someone else has plow I call them a BAD plower:nod:
    When I leave them I call them entrails (like in guts) and I go back and clean them up.:D

    Yes,they're windrows---the mark of either a lazy plower or one who bit off more than he can chew,or one who either doesn;t give a damn,or just doesn't know any better,or a combo of any or all the above.

    LOL Snail Trails!!! Funny we all have our names for it... .but all the same reasons. People are lazy. Some customers just dont care as long as they can get in and out.... let them hire the $99 a season guys. We clean up behind ourselves, and if we can talk the customer into it, will salt as well making sure there is NOTHING left behind.

    What do you guys charge for salt say on a normal lot. Like 15 or 20 car size.
    Never use the stuff up here. How much is it per yard for your spreader? Do you get it loaded by a loader or 50lb bags?
