    All I can say is WOW :dizzy:

    So far I have plowed twice and I can not believe how unprofessional the snow removal industry is looking this season.

    Now I'm not picking on everyone because there are some top notch companies on here but what is going on?

    Plowing piles across the street and not even getting them up on the curb.

    Using a rear blade to drag the snow out of the driveway and then lift the blade to disperse it in the street as they drive away.

    Pileing up snow on my customers entrances (already returned lol).

    This morning, I had a guy in an unlettered truck (plenty of these around) heading in the opposite direction as me drop his blade on a main road doing about 40 mph and cover my truck with a heavy, wet spray of slush. I almost turned around on the spot.

    You guys who do this stuff know who you are. Knock it off.

    The rest of you :salute: Best of luck this season.

    I am lucky enough to have some top notch companies in the area and rarely do I run into that problem.

    Today on my way back home a county truck was clearing the slush from the center lane on a 5 lane road and I wasn't thinking with my window down an inch or two and got drenched. xysport

    Last year I was doing an optomitrist office on a corner lot with city walks and the guy across the street pushes a HUGE load of snow onto my sidewalks. We always have problems with the walks anyway being a corner lot in the city so I had to call the Dr. to tell him there is no way I can handle that snow without bringing in a bobcat at his expense....he said he would take care of it and it never happened again!

    I WOULD HAVE BEAT THE SH!T OUT OF HIM!!! you know hearing stuff like this is really sad, around here for the most part everyone wants to help everyone else out, with the exception of a few companies (and everyone around here hates those companies anyways) oh well, the ignorant get theirs in the end, usually when they are stuck and need someone to pull them out and you put your blade down to help them with more snow

    Funny story about the city guy's...

    We had all the cars moved off the lot so i could finish cleaning up, well they were starting to put the front row back in so one of the sales guy's (in a suit) went out in the front grass to get this wrangler that was parked up there, he gets the door open and before i could yell to him the city truck came by pushing a huge wall of slush/snow, he was covered head to tow and so was the inside of the jeep.. I laughed almost all day about that. I'm sure the guy in the city truck was ready to wreck from laughing so hard..

    Yeah, I think some of the replies are a little over the top.

    Or maybe they just know him.
