    I have 7 commercial accounts and 12 residential (depending on storm). The tractor actually stays in my home garage and its used to service 8 of the residentials and clear away from dumpsters and other access points at some of the commercials. It can be driven to all the sites i need to hit with it. The chevy is the main plow truck and anything 3" and down its the only truck that comes out. The dodge is used on larger storms (only driven by me) and when i need to drop straight rock salt.

    drop straight rock salt? why would you do that? Don't you run bulk salt through the chevy?

    i run 3:1 sand salt in the chevy. my places want the mix. With the ice storm we had up here a couple weeks ago, the mix wouldn't touch the ice..so we picked up the little spreader to just run bagged rocked salt on the 2 places that need to be brought down to pavement/cement faster.

    also you have to remember in jersey you can put salt down and everything is melted and gone in 24 hours… its been below zero to single digits the last 2 weeks here, we pretty much need to put sand on everything because nothing melts for weeks at a time!!

    yeah, i don't put enough miles or tow heavy enough of a load to justify the extra to buy a diesel, and i got a hell of a deal on this thing because its a 2011 i bought in march with 1400 miles on it. Next truck to be added will be a 3500 single rear wheel with a diesel, if i see things going in the direction where i need to start towing more weight.
