    It's 90 degrees and sultry in Ohio today. How many days do you think you're going to have to wait for your first plowable snow of the season? Probably around 150 days here.:cry:

    The better question is how many people here can have their entire snow plow fleet ready to go in 2 hours for that freak mid july snow storm we get around here LOLOLOL.

    I know I probably could. All I got to do is put the plows and spreaders on both trucks, take the tracks off the skid and hook up a protech, then mount the plow and spreader on the tractor. As for the equipment that pusher our other protechs, just have to get them on the trailer and to the job. Between myself and partner we got like 160 tons of salt ready to go.

    Anybody else?

    Snow is a seasonal phenomena that people beeawwtch about in the winter, much like the heat in the summer.

    Drive to the Shop, to hook up the Fisher.

    Dig the Salt box out of the back of the shop. I got a hut full of salt so i'd be ready in 2 hours

    On the same note, any one that didnt renew there contract yet, it would be odd trying to know who to plow and not, but all the ones still under contract would be ok

    I'd be ready, only got to go hook up my plow.


    Why can't we have a couple preplanned snow storms during the summer to keep our skills ready for winter?

    Yup we could probably do it. Just get set-up not actually delivering on-site equipment would NOT be included in the 2 hours. My salters' in my garage, so just slide it in, strap it down, 2 plugs and v'oila we're ready to rock! We've got about 5 pallets of salt left. Normally that would carry me thru 2 events.:D
