    Around the Cols area they pay $50 an hour, and some probably try to pay less. When they are charging $75 to $100, I would think that they could at least pay $50 . I mean it's your equipement, ins and gas. You're going to spend $10 an hour on gas.

    Your going to Eastlake, thats way to far in a storm, but ya i know you gotta start somewhere. Id rather leave my truck sit in my driveway before i make a 20 min trip to eastlake. I take it easy on my truck this year and help my buddie out with his route for now, and do my leg work later this fall. 18 resdentails is respectable, is plowing your only job rite now? Myself i work for SBC for my daytime job and i own a tree service so i fig that i better put my truck to use when the snow flies. Well to use my own truck in a parking lot at the corner of 91 and 20 for 35 buck an hour is too low. So again ill let my truck sit for now. I do have a couple of res in pvll myself for this year, but i hope to drop them next year if i can pick up some work in mentor. I just helped out a guy xmas nite with his route so look me up if your in some need ....Rob

    Eastlake isn't bad on me cause I work a line down Lakeshore within 5 miles of the 2 commercials I have and always fuel up at the dairy-mart on lakeshore (lowest price I find on gas)
    I had to take a Early retirement from trucking after 25 years so I get a small retirement check. (lost most of one foot to gangrene) thanks to a doctor so picked up the 250 with the plow and hoping to get into the lawn business also to help out seeing that the SSI doesnt think I should get any help from them. Got to make a living somehow and not many places want a 52 year old guy with a 1/2 foot ( But the Lady's like my line: you ever have a man with a foot and 1/2 LoL) so I thought I would get into something I enjoy. will give ya call during a good storm if we ever get one!!!:drinkup:
