    The guy with the back blade gets more. he should be more efficent.
    Hiring subs with v-boxes is not a good idea, buy your own v-box apply salt and let the subs beat the crap out of there equipment pushin snow. Salt is were the money is so why sub that out ? It cracks me up how I here I would never salt with that truck or this truck it tears em up. Ha ha, but plowin snow is good for the truck ?

    either way salting or plowing you are putting a beating either on the frame, the shocks, springs, engine...everything...

    Yes you are correct, salting tends to generate a heck of alot more money though.

    I would rather salt 10 times a year than plow 10 times a year. Keep your equipment clean, upgrade often (every few years), and sub the plowing. I would say the guy with the pull plow should see more money. Buy your own v-box.
