    Upfitters here south of boston have lots of last years plows,pushers and sanders sitting in their yards! If this winter is a repeat of last winter, and its starting to look that way, there will be some great deals to be had come spring?

    Had a local hardware store last year purchase 60 new toro snowblowers. At the end of last winter he still had 60 snowblowers and 20 skids of rock salt he had to pay for storage for the summer. He was worried saying if it is a similar winter he may have to close. Plus trying to compete with the big stores makes it tough. He survives on neighborhood patronage . There may be a few outfitters struggling right now.

    So great, we'll have deals here in MA on snow removal equipment. We still have no snow, so what's the point? Ha. I'll stick to my used but good plows and trucks. I don't want to end up loosing my shirt.
