    WHY!!!:nono: most people that plow snow do so on a contract basis, and get paid no matter how much or how little it snows. less times going out means more of your time lossed and less wearn' tear/ fuel loss. Plus more time for :drinkup: :)

    Just heard the short term forecast. Parts of NY can expect up to 12" in the next couple days. Some parts of NE got 12" of rain in the past week and was noted to equal 120" of snow. We're supposed to get ice and a little snow Wednesday night, but doubt if it'll amount to much.

    Not many around here are on a contract basis. Matter of fact, no one I know. I had a small contract a few years ago that was real lucrative, but that only lasted a couple of years. No snow = no money; more snow = more money.

    I'm looking out my window right now and it is snowing. We got about an inch in parts of Pittsburgh. Nothing on the roads though. I hate to say it, but it is too early for this. We have mucho work left to do before we even THINK about plowing/salting.

    Wing Plow

    I recently saw an odd wing plow in Wisconsin, it was being pulled on the trucks' right side on what looked like a trailer. Does anyone know what kind of plow this is and who makes it ? Have any of you ever used it ? Thanks for the help !!!!!!!!!

    You hit that right. Most of my places are contract. I make more money if it doesn't snow.
