    Your plowing and your competition was plowing next door and you see they got stuck would you go over and offer to pull them out?
    Was just curious after reading lots of posts lately where guys got stuck.
    I personaly would offer but thats just me.

    Yes.
    Unless iam in a rush or just don't feel like doing it, i will pull out anyone that is stuck. Who cares if its a competitor, maybe sometime he will be in a position to help you out somewhere down the road.

    Yes Tim I would also go help them. You never know when you will need help.
    Also it helps to know your competition. You can network with them and you never know he might send you a job that he can't do for one reason or the other.
    I would help any plower out till they give me a reason not to. Life is like one big circle it's going to come back around sooner or later.

    Regards Mike

    I actually exchange cell phone numbers with my competition just for that purpose. Or if we need other help.
