    As you know,I plow with a truck only. Even though a Ford F250 with Boss v plow is the best you can do,Working on a bid and if I was to get it, would mean getting a loader and push box. Not to big of a deal,problem is, my helper for my landscaping would have to jump in and at least start plowing, Thing is, he never really plowed before, he is a fast learner ,but...:confused:

    They have to start somewhere. Is it possible to plow the lots together? Give him all the easy parts while you take care of the detail work.

    Put him in the pusher. Better sightlines, used in low risk parts of the lot, simple as a rock to operate, can't really hurt it.

    I guess it all depends on how hard the lot is.
    Sounds like there may be some dry land training. A pusher is pretty easy.
