    Long time lurker first time poster.. Little history behind me and the company I am 22 years old and have been around snow plowing since I was little. My dad had owned a Landscaping/ Excavation Company for 35 years but then decided to sell it to pursue other business ventures when I was about 14. Once I was old enough to drive I started everything over on my own. Well enough talking here are some pictures.

    The first picture is the trucks that got me started 2001 F250 xl with 41000 miles and a 8' hiniker plow and a snow ex spreader

    2005 dodge 2500 no longer with me

    Personally, I think the OBS body style fords are the nicest they made... but have fun this season, as you seem to be moving along nicely with your diverse group of rides. Thumbs Up

    Just my 2 cents. If the trucks work, why keep spending money? This is also coming from a guy in a 99 dodge though.. I just can't make myself pull the trigger on a new truck with those rediculus price tags.

    Looks like you've grown your company quite a bit. Good luck!

    Thanks IA farmer I hope it snows soon we have not even had a salting event yet and 50 degree temps for the next week do not look promising...

    The dodge is starting to penny and dime me and it would be nice to have a more reliable and larger dump for our summer work. More than likely clean pre owned trucks that match the rest of the trucks better. Thanks though it sure was not easy to get to this point

    Congrats on your business for one thing, it's not easy. A few words of advice, and you can take it or leave it, quit wasting money buying and selling used pickups. The Bobcats were easily your smartest buys. You can make money with those. They hold their value pretty well and generally don't require to much upkeep. I've found over 30 yrs it's better to buy new and try your best to keep them looking and running well for as long as possible.

    I appreciate the advice that was my plan in the coming years was to buy new trucks and keep them as long as possible. In the past few years I was not in the right financial spot to go buy new vehicles so I made due for the time being. A warranty and tax break would be nice.

    Awesome fleet, the only thing I would say is it might be a good idea to standardize on your plows, it is easier to keep spare parts on hand if all your stuff is the same.

    Nice equipment you have, and keep up the good work on your business. Nice to see a young guy be a go getter!
