    I am new and last year i ran with a myers plow on a normal truck but this year i am getting one from my boss and he said i need commerical tags to run strobes and flashing lights. Is that the Ohio law?

    How much should I charge for residential and commerical places to do their snow removel?

    Anyone know where i can get a really cheap 8.2 boss v plow with smart hitch 2 and all?

    if you use your truck to make money then yes you need commercial tags. as for the strobes i dont know if it is state law but its a good idea for safety sake.

    it depends on how big the places are and how long it takes you to do them...make sure you cover your overhead costs as well and figure in salt/ sand

    look under the for sale forum on here, ebay, craigslist. just remember you get what you pay for.

    salt melts ice and snow sand just gives you traction. if you sand then they are probably going to want you to clean the mess up in the spring.

    only you know what you need to charge to cover all expenses plus make a profit. just because you are small doesnt mean you have less overhead and can charge less, ussually it means you have to charge more.
