    I think around here most of the lowballers with those kind of trucks plow our gas stations. Which is ok, they are kinda cheap around here, at least I think.

    An apartment complex in town had one of those tow behind spreaders, they could use it fertilizer and over seeding too. Still looked pretty funny though.:dizzy:

    Maybe it is the land owner?

    The garage I have whatever work done I can not do has a old full sized blazer with a plow on it. Next time I am there I will get a few shots of it.

    It is barely sitting on the frame anymore the body is so rusted. It leans to the point that it looks like the back tail pipe drags.

    This year alone he has saved over $10 grand on plowing though.

    Not counting years past. I would say it paid for itself 10 fold+.

    Now if that guy above is actually going to commercial lots and plowing then I wouldn't be to worried about him. It should show the dramatic difference in a professionals truck and what he has or whatever you drive.

    Would you rather he be out on the corners at stop lights looking for handouts?

    looks like he's driving a truck that is paid for and he is making $$$$$ that he will put back into the economy.....

    Reaper, no that is not the landowner, That is Bill's Landscapign LOL

    He Plows, The old folks home (Took it from me this year, I been doing it for the past 4 years or so) He also plows a post office and the Pizza hut.

    The GM from Pizza hut ask me one night when I got pizza, If Bill dosent show up or the lot needs done, If he could call us to plow and I told him we would. Then He told me what they pay Bill! They pay him with Pizza Cards LOL

    The other guy with the pull behind is no big deal, I talk to him a few times hes a cool cat

    I think he is smarter than that. I guess I should get back to the desk cleanup. I have taken a long enough break from doing getting organized.
