    Ok, so I dont know where to post this so it'll go here, because I have beenon here long enough and have read plenty to quit making posts in the new to the industry forum. Y'all have learned me a lot bout this snow stuff! :jester: Anyway, I cant plow this winter but I think Ill try to get a few shoveling jobs. I have mowed lawns for a few people and most are elderly people who could care less when the snow gets moved, so I can do some before school but wont have a problem finishing after school Im thinking if I have some people I have lined up ask around I can get a few houses to take care of. Anyway, what would you guys suggest for a medium duty blower. I have a John Deere, but it cant handle anything heavy or wet. I dont want to spend much at all, but I think if i can shovel for a month I can get a little more $$ for a nicer blower.
