    Well here is my thread ill get started. My equipment lineup is not much, but the quad alone pulled me in a $1000 storm last year with basically now overhead. The quad is payed off and all I have put into it this year is the winch so if I make 200bucks plus salt and fuel costs ill be set. Yes I do need a truck and plan to add one next year. Oh and the mower was the first plow I bought myself. Paid $400 for it and it has paid for itself several times. It is nicknamed the redneck rid ever since I smashed the hood dropping it out of the back of a truck.

    I try to take pride in what equipment I have so I repainted both plows this year and wash everything as soon as it gets home from plowing.

    The new hoods for the lx176 run around $105 and up. I have a Lx172 and the Lx 170's all use the same hood and that's what I was quoted. If it's not bad just cover the holes with duct tape and spray it with JD paint. You wont notice it until you're about a foot away and it works pretty well (I haven't done it but I know about four people who have). If it is worse than a few holes then go and get a new hood.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I know it is not much but the quad brings me in some decent money and for some of the drives I do I would take it over a quad any day. I still have the f350 just havnt got it running yet. It is a little big for what I need now so I havnt done anything with it.

    Nice set-up, I would love a quad for some of the alley driveways I do. Those things are nice for
    the smaller areas, still can't beat the comfort of a cab at 5 in the morning though! Good luck this year!

    Ya like I said I would not give this up for a truck on SOME of my drives. The biggest problem about a quad is some customers are hesitant to hire you untill they see the job you can do.

    Well here are a couple pictures of some more equipment. The John Deere 318 is what I first started plowing with that got me hooked! I still use it as a backup but I took it over to my younger cousins to play with...who knows I might get a future employee out of it. The truck is my dads 2006 Ford F250 with 8'2" Boss V, I guess you could consider him one of my subs because he takes on most of the work that I cant handle. The last is the snow blower that I just bought in anticipation for this weekends storm.ussmileyflag

    I still have it..actually it is possibly sold. After I bought it I realized that it was going to be way to big for what I plow and that I was better off to save towards something that will make me more money.
