    Middle of the day on a weekend where everyone can do more of a show and tell. Probably a pig roast type of thing.

    what about Nixon farm in west friendship?

    plenty of space to have a show and tell and they will provide food. We might have to start having a cover or atleast having vendors pay alittle for space.

    Sal saw your stuff at the fair. Nice looking wide out. How do you like it ? No one was at you stand when we were there Sunday night. What type of customer are you trying to target ? If its drives that you want I'll send mine your way.

    I love my wideouts. wouldn't go back to a straight blade again.

    We are looking for commercial properties ofcourse...however some residentals would be good for our program depending on their location!

    Word has it that Brickman in Columbia is in need of alot more plow trucks this year . From what I have been told they are paying over 100 per hour per truck. Some of you guys might want to check into it.

    I completely doubt that. Btw the columbia brickman is the worst one to plow for. They have you plow for a couple of hours during the day if that. They have you come back during the night to plow after there is 8" on the lot. All the other locations have you work around the clock. The most brickman pays is $75 an hour.

    I have heard that the Columbia branch is the worst also. But I also know guys who are plowing for them and have seen thier job sheets as for what they are getting per hour and its alot more than 75 per hour ! Most guys get in with them then hire subs under them and are making money off of that. The branch that is closer to you Itsgottobegreen is probably one of the highest paying branchs. I just figured I would put this out there cause there are always guys looking for work. I was making 65 per hour over 20 years ago when I first got into plowing, and that was as a sub.
