    Since the mods closed the other thread because supposedly it was off topic. Thats not me on the blower... I aint got much but what I do have I use it to its fullest and make money off of it. I plan to get another truck sometime over the summer maybe, or a nice two stage but not sure yet. Hoping for the truck but we'll see. I'll have more pictures as winter moves along.

    personally I don't think the 2-stage will work good for your area...

    Sitck with single stages, save up for a truck and plow. and don't waste your money on a overweight 2 stager.

    I agree with bladescape. I would personally save up for a plow. Possibly look for a ATV with a plow. I have had very good luck with mine and personaly would not a take a truck over it on my driveways. A plow will be faster then a blower, untill you get 8-12in IMHO.

    Why don't you just put the blower in the bed of the truck?

    yeah keep your single stage and use that for walks and stuff then the new truck with a plow will work great

    Here we go again!!! Keep those awsome pictures coming. You should hall your blower around on a trailer, just in case you need to put the gate down.

    Thanks, thats my plan
    I'm really hoping for that second truck
    I've thought about an ATV too instead of a truck but I'm just not sure.
    Too much crap to work around back there.
    Thats probably whats going to end up happening.

    maybe you should try organizing it. that carry rack looks like crap and just adds length to your truck....dont want to be backing into a parked car since you dont have insurance....doubt auto will cover you since you're out working....

    Austin were those first 2 pics of just drifts? In the 2nd picture it looks like there wasn't even any snow in the middle unless you salted

    Its all about what the customer wants. I have had to put rock salt on nice concrete drives before because customers dont want to pay extra for calcium. I tell them the differences. Now if you put salt when they requested calcium that could get you into trouble but otherwise its what they pay for... hes not gunna have to be replaces driveways...

    That little Toro can't be cuttin the mustard. I had one of those 20 Yrs ago and used it for walks and steps. Was great for that. For $650.00 you can buy a new Toro or for less money maybe one that is a year or two old. Either way it will pay for itself in less than a season because you can do more accounts easier. Just use the pup for smaller areas. Make room in the bed of your truck, it won't take up that much space. BTW I really like your truck. If your trying to make money at this, you have to spend a little.

    MJD. you owe me some non-deleted nasty posts for getting this thread back on track! :D

    with a more expensive snowblower he would have to worry more about theft with it hangin off the end of the truck.

    Probly with any snowblower in the back of a truck you should have it locked, maybe a cable or even better a chain with some kind of a lock
