    How about a lawn tractor, with a blade? You can cut grass too payup

    I think you'd be better off with a lawn mower that had a snow blower, or a walk behind snow blower. If you are old enough to run one safely that is. For 1500, you could a nice walk behind with a shield, and little push salt spreader. I would not try to act like a business tho. Act like a kid who needs money, and you will do better (sympathy effect etc). Also, a company has to pay takes, insurance, etc. One of my friends in new jersey lives on a lake. Some kids were driving around in their dads boat selling sodas and candy on the lake. They were ten and eleven. The cops fined them for selling without a license. Don't forget a good shovel.

    on second thought. Invest that 1500$ in a good CD or bank account. Buy a shovel, and just use that. Only doing 2 driveways, it won't pay to buy a lot of equipment. Put the money towards college.

    I also have this picture with the plow attached, it's the only picture with the plow, and when I went to prom in april, I still had it on for some excavation. But yeah, A lawn and garden tractor is the best route to go if you're only 12. Thats what I was using, and i'm 19 now, and buying a plow this summer.

    That would be great, a 317 is a great tractor. I'd jump on it.
