    Man, I can't wait to buy a nice big Walters or Oshkosh or Int next spring, I'm going to work up in southern NH doing plow contracts.

    That's a very nice Oskhosh and Autocar. My Grandfather and Great Grandfather used MANY Autocars in Acton, Massachusetts. Also a few Brockways and Macks and probably Internationals. Besides construction, they'd do paving and blasting as well. Blasting was the first specialty. They still have the signs they hung on the side of the tracks for blasting. I was cleaning the basement in my Great Grandfathers house and there were a ton of blasting caps... no joke.

    Anyway, it's great to see old trucks like that. Do you have some snowplow contracts?

    No More Contracts.

    Hello, All of that old iron is still hard at work,I have kept tabs on it since it left my fleet.
    I gave up all my contracts between labor and the cost of doing business in this state(Registrations,Insurance,Land etc..) it wasnt worth it.Not to mention waiting six months to get paid from the state!!! :angry:
    I myself am headed up into the Conway NH area in the next month or so.....New Hampshire came up twice in recent surveys of the top places in the country to do business(Top four in both surveys).Mass didnt even rate! :waving:
    I also had a paving company,a good friend of mine(Bought my Oshkosh from me) is a blaster up on Cape Ann.
