    I would retire now before all the bad stuff in your future that is bound to happen actually does. that old equipment is sure to fail and leave your customers angry wishing their plow guy had a reliable new truck like he should. I would never hire a driver with a truck more than 10 years old, but prefer to have all 2004 and newer.

    Hello elizra,I have the underhood fisher plow system. I like it better then the electric plows . It can push and stack piles like crazy. The lower pulley goes in front of the harmonic balancer. Don't know anyone who could install in your area. Like was said,older trucks can be unreliable,just start out small and get some buds who can cover for you. plowking

    Dead on, new trucks NEVER break down, warranties are useless. :dizzy:

    Try to realize that you are posting in the "Newby" section of the forum, one of the places here where it doesn't hurt to cut a poster a little slack. Besides, if he sticks around, he'll probably know more than you within months anyways.

    PS, I hate being a Dink on here, but they just may feel compelled to delete your crap post when axxing mine! :rolleyes:

    ya cause new ones never break down, my older trucks are more reliable than alot of peoples new ones. the last new truck i bought was in for warrenty repair 4 times in the first year.one time was in the middle of winter and it was down for 3 weeks for an electric problem, truck was bought new in mid july and this was in mid jan. good thing i had one of my OLDER trucks for a back up.
  6. You must be one of those "my truck is better than yours" snobs I see on the roads every storm... My 97 Dodge Ram 1500 has not failed me yet and let me tell you I push it to the limits...

    elizra18, I went to Meyers website and searched a Mass zip code I know and got the following results. These should get you started or sent in the right direction.

    Ive made 3000 this season as a side job in a $300 1993 chevy blazer thats been beaten to bits time and time again with no heat with a $175 plow thats broken twice with a 50 dollar T5 plow pump. I'm doing fine and have only had two complaints due to me not getting snow and not realizing someone else did. has it broken? sure! maybe I just know what I'm doing but in the end. I have a hand shovel and buddies. ;)

    I think the OP already does know more. Elizra already saved money by buying used over paying outragous monthly payments on a new truck. NW Snow Removal needs to come back down to Earth (or share whatever it is he is drinking and/or smoking) because for some reason, he thinks that new trucks do not start to break down until they are about 10 years old. Either NW is on something or that new truck dealer found his repeat sucker....ooops I meant customer. :laughing:

    Elizra... Do not let comments like NW made affect your activity here. Good Luck and have fun plowing.
