    Ya my wallet is very light this season. I've only been out twice in the begining of December and none since and don't see any in the near future. I started yard work and I think I'm going to plant grass this weekend to.

    People from Ohio WoW
    If I may ask you a question, Do any of you have a sidewalk crew? Or a plow truck crew?
    If so, whats the best way to pay them? I have a lawn service with 1 worker, and I was wondering how to keep him around all year? Thank you in advance for any and all info.

    Thanks Carl Beatty

    Hey jeep i figure I would start a thread the Ohio guys we all need to get the mowers out of storage were Mother Nature can see them give her a reason to open up.:D :dizzy:
    Yes another sizzler here in Cincinnati :realmad: I figure all that yard work you been doing would make it snow. LOL

    Hey Carl We have both of those crews but if you look outside they seem kinda obsolete
    get him out doing door hangers aor advertising. When it comes to paying for snow what ever you think is fair everyone is different.:salute:
    What part of Ohio are you from?

    JEEP
    Yes you might want to look into that because the winters are getting shorter and shorter.
    We all have to pay the man some way or the other.

    LOWLIFE
    You might want to look into better employees then or try find a good foreman that will crack the wip. Thats my opinion only not trying to tell HOW :) No offense. I had to go through the same thing. Hourly is the way to go though.:salute:

    i do need a better worker but not finding any. i'm going to start spring clean ups Monday but now weather is calling for snow on Tuesday so at least i'm working. some guys have payments on their trucks and are not working that would suck as for a ohio get together the outdoor equipment show is at the end of the month in Columbus{at the ohio state fair grounds} i'll be there because. I need a new mower and two years ago a salesmen offered a thousand off at the show.if it is close to that or we could meet there.I don't have tickets but will have them by next week Christmas lights if you put them up make enough $ to cut them down no tangles no mess .

    I'm hoping that it will be here by tuesday guys. Man your lucky up there to even get 3 ice melting events, let alone we've only had one! Crazy. I'm pretty sure were just gonna get hit when we least expect it.

    scottscape we only have had one salt and one plow in Dec. the last three years have been bad i have a 5 mile max that i drive to plow and its so hit or miss here that its always east or west.



    fernalddude i took of the spreader and one of the pumps that sucks if it don't snow and i put all the blades ext. so i've decided to wait on till the 2'' is on the ground
