    Well first post on the new season. Sold my sprayer to another member today. So back to the drawing board, new sprayer time. Looks like it will have to be a 205 gallon w/ electric start from the cab this time. 305 gallon was just too much weight.

    ^ how about it? When it snows they want their lots clear of ALL snow and ice ASAP and when its time to pay they take their sweet a$$ time. We would get the boot if we waited!

    That part does bother the H3ll out of me, but my customers are very dependable payers. Monthly billing and a certain number of weeks to get paid. Very seldom are they late? I have some that are 1 week, some that are 6 weeks. But always pay and never complain about the bill. So I just kick back, wait, and count the weeks....:D

    I just hope that means we have an extremely above average snow fall for the season.

    I'm in. So how does everyone think this season is going to be.

    To all those looking to collect on '09-'10 season post in that forum.;)

    On Edit: before we know it someone will be posting for the '11-'12 season before '10 is done, lol

    Thats what I was thinking/hoping for. If the temps were just 10-20 degrees lower we'd be in business.

    Its fine that this thread has been started, it is just funny how the '09-'10 thread was started in May and here we are in March and on to the next one, next year we'll have to start one in January for the following season.

    I was thinking of getting a 9' V Squeegee with a 3 point blower to start a spring time service. What do you think?

    What are ya cooking ? Waste oil or beans ?
    When you say plant, do you mean for resale, or just for fun ?
    My 05 Dodge really likes that b-100, to bad theres no one local in far NE IL. I would run it all the time for the above freezing months.

    to all snow plowers... under no circumstances should you do any contracting with
    amazing contractors out of Wis and Oak Park IL..

    I subcontracted to them threw Jill's snow plowing in Dyer IN. and that guy Danny/amazing contractors has bounced every pay check he has given Jill's snow plowing..

    so while we wait to go after that jag off in the courts for the money he owes us..

    I just wanted to let every one know to stay away from that guy... he will stick you in the butt also... and if you did do work for him hit me up and we can get on the same page with the lawyer to recoup money.....
