    Got a question. My idiot landlord just came up with a new rule for where I live. No Snow Plows. Needless to say I'm major p'd I just bought my plow last year, hopefully I can get him to let me keep mine but we'll see. Now to my question or questions. 1) can I sell just the plow itself? and leave everything under the hood? and the push plates? and 2) what would be a good price for a MM2 7'6" LD it's on my 03 Dakota, you folks have probly seen my pics on the Fisher section.

    Get him to define that? No plows on the trucks? No plows in the lot?

    Do you want to get out of plowing?

    If not find a landscaper or other business with a secure lot. Ask them if you can pay a small rent and keep you plow there when you are not using it.

    Na, no plows, no plowing period . . unless it's them. I'd like to keep plowing, I enjoyed what little I did last year. I'm thinking what it comes down to is the boob that the park contracted to plow last year tore huge gashes into peoples lawns with his plow an busted a few water shutoff's, ect that the park just decided no plows. I'm hoping I'm jumping the gun, I've never had any problems with the owner before, so I'm hoping he'll let this slide.

    No plows allowed

    Jac,

    You say landlord, right? Does your written lease prohibit commercial equipment or is he singling you out? Do other commercial vehicles park where you park? What makes them different than you?
    Thats the legal part, it's that he is changing the written lease after you both signed it, Judge Judy would eat his lunch.

    do you have an option to park close but not on his property? Little more walking but you get to keep your plow.

    OR

    Would he assign a specific spot for you, more out of the way so your plow isn't on the side walk or sticking out, in exchange for you being on site to do his plowing, make him your first and last account. so you clean, go do whatever and when you come back you touch up and stay on call to "help keep his property safe", he might like that.

    But yes you can sell, plow or plow and mount or plow, mount, wiring & controls,.......I wouldn't be the guy to help with price, but I am sure somebody will help you with this, good luck.

    JMO, good luck

    Na, it came in everyones mail. Unfortunately they gave a thirty day notice to the change, though I'm not sure how it would go with me since I renewed my lease back in July. Like I say maybe I'm jumping the gun, but it don't hurt to feel things out ahead of time if I do have to sell it.

    Read the fine print real carfully. My fiance is a property manager and deals with leases and rights of the tenants all day long. Her leases have a section in which it states that the lease can be ammended at any time with no notice to the tenant, everyone likes to fight about new additions until they realize that their signature is on the lease. I'm not sticking up for the landlord cause most of them are on power trips , but alot of tenants will destroy the property if the landlord doesn't have rules and make some new ones up as situations arise. Double check your lease and if things don't look right to you, go from there. Good luck, hope you get to keep your plow!!!

    Another thing, I can see if he doesn't want it stored there, it's his property. But if it's hooked to your truck he can't do **** about it. That be like telling you that he doesn't want brushguards on his property, so do you take that off before you pull in!!!! Let him know that you have a lawyer reveiwng your lease and if the landlord is in the wrong he probably won't bring it up again.

    You don't plow the property do you? I wouldn't even plow my parking space. Heck leave the plow lifted an inch even when its there.

    Got a meeting with them tuesday morning. I'm hoping that it's just for "new" tenants, but we'll see.

    Must Sell Mm2 Ld

    Okey, mega p'd!!!!! just had my meeting with the ahole and NO Plows Period. Here's what's said on the 30 day notice. Any individual, contractor, friend relative, ect., that is found plowing the leased premises will be considered, by NYS law, as trespassing on private property and may be subject to punitive and criminal charges.
    Tenants are allowed to hire an insured contractor (with required insurance and hold harmless agreement) to clear snow, using these methods ONLY: snowblower, snow brushing, snow shoveling, skidsteering with squeegee or snow blower).
    So back to my original question how much could I get/ sell my New 7'6" LD plow for? Would $2,000.00 be outta line? Or is anybody looking to buy the above plow?

    Is that the extent of the note from them? If so, it doesn't say you can't keep the plow there or have it on your truck; rather, you simply can't plow your own driveway or have it plowed. Yes no?

    Yeah I'm confused. Were you using the plow to plow your driveway which is owned by him? Or do you just want the plow on for your own work? I don't think he can really say you can't have the plow, while he could say that you can't plow your drive.

    in my opinon there is no reason for this. you dont remove your own snow and will not do it with your plow setup ever at his location were you live.

    so why should you be made to get rid of or store someplace else a item you own and invested time and money in to.

    get him to let you sign a letter stating you will not use it on any of his proporty and that it will only be in the storage place its in or on the truck and parked when not in use during winter.

    mabye he will agree to that. hell even see if the little old lady across the way that tells on every one would agree to tell on you if you did use it on his land. as we all have one of those little old ladys next door with nothing to do but look and tell.

    No, in the attached add on to the ruls it states. The use of any type of snowplowing vehicles is strictly prohibited, also prohibited is the storage of any such equipment. If my scanner wasn't screwing with me I'd post the notices for ya. So, I got a brand new plow and can't even plow my own driveway.
