    What spare plow parts do you folks keep in the truck (pump fluid, solenoids, hose..etc...)

    This is my first year doing commercial plowing, and I'm just trying to be prepared. I'm also curious what other extras everyone carries with them.

    Coffee? I'll take a large, thanks

    The spares really depend on the condition/age of your equipment. Fluid and FUNNEL or spout is a must Carry a jack so you can lift the plow to lock it with the safety chain incase of massive leak or failure.

    Basic tools that can repair stuff until you get it to a shop.

    After all that 2 or 3 quarts of coffee, extra butts and whatever else lights your fire. And don't forget the _ _ _ _ _ _!!!!
