    Hi,

    I wanted to take the time to introduce myself. My name is Andrew and I represent J-Thomas on PlowSite. If you need anything related to J-Thomas, I will take care of you.

    Since I'm new, I wanted to introduce myself with a great special. A lot of us on this forum use driveway markers. Order 100 or more of the part "STAKE1" and receive them for $0.25 each

    The part: http://goo.gl/BlxSJ

    You have to order between 10/18 and 10/21. Phone order only 1-800-828-7980.

    I'm also listening to our customers and reading plowsite threads as well. I'm here to make your experience ordering parts better and easy. Anything I can do, please let me know.

    Thanks and I look forward to interacting with you on Plow Site,

    Andrew.

    Hey Andrew, could you please have Jon call me about the SnowX drop spreaders. He has my cell and office number...

    If you happen to be Jon's boss I want to tell you what a great guy and help he has been to us over the years! :drinkup:

    26" in length??? After driving them in the ground, they would be buried after the first snow storm. :dizzy:

    I dont know about you but I teach my guys to plow BETWEEN the stakes... Also after a couple pushes, yeah they get covered but by then we have already established the curb line since the pile is there. Then you plow between the windrow of snow!

    With most drives being straight forward its really not a bad deal.

    They are in fact 26", they're just little guys. We use them for our apartments in the areas where we don't pile a lot of snow as well as for sidewalks, they work great! However, the 36" ones are what we primarily use for parking lots and driveways.

    Which leads me to my question Andrew, will you be having any specials this year on the 36" stakes? I thought I remembered seeing them for .69 last year, but this year they're .94 on your website.

    Always a pleasure doing business with J Thomas, they've taken good care of me in the past. Thumbs Up

    Absolutely but we all know it's not that simple. Many stakes are used to mark low lying obstacles that you want to always know where they are, so when you need to push banks back, you don't hit those obstacles. If you bury the stakes on the first plowing, they really are not doing much good. If you're just marking pavement/grass edges, then yeah, I could see using the shorter ones.

    Either way, these are a good deal for what you're getting. Thanks to the sponsor!!

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    These are indeed 26". They are the little guys :) Sorry for the lack of data on the website. I'm WORKING on it!!! I want to make the website better and faster for you. Any feedback you want to share would be great!

    Second question was if we will have any specials on 36" stakes. If it's something you would like to see, I'll try my best to work on it. Can't make any promises.

    Thanks! Yes, we are a proud sponsor of LawnSite and PlowSite. We want to give you great deals. Has everyone liked us on Facebook? We're going to start having more and more specials.

    I would also like to see a special on the 36" stakes as I have no use for a 26" stake. The sooner the better as I'm sure menards will have their 48" ones on sale shortly at .99 cents and at that point I'll just be buying those.

    I use the 48 inch stakes. I like the 48's because when and if they break I can just stick them back in the ground and there still useable for the rest of the season. I have been a happy
    J-thomas customer since 2002. Kind of dissapointed they moved to Novi though... Thumbs Up
