    I've never plowed snow and I have one commercial account that has 3 locations. Currently I have an 1986 F250 Diesel, and a Western Snow Plow. Now I'm in the market for a spreader and snow blower but not sure what to buy. Are there any safety tips while I'm out there. I'm pretty sure that there are some definate do's and don't so I would appreciate any feedback.

    I didn't know that Maryland got much snow. I'm new to the industry too. How did you manage to get a commercial account ? Good luck.

    Welcome to Plowsite
    First drive slow when plowing tell you get the feel for it. Its alot better to find cracks and bumps going slow. I like the Toro snowblowers myself but you must run all of the gas out in the spring or it is a bit tough getting them to start in the fall. I would start with a tailgate spreader, Boos Makes a nice one as does Snowex and Western. Do not plow with your head sticking out of the window, that can hurt. Use the search engine on plowsite before making a new post, most of this stuff has been talked about alot.

    Good Luck Mike
