    Serious issues here gentlemen...ladies too....

    I've two different companies offering sponsorship (A Western Dealership/BOSS Dealership) for my new truck. 2003 chevrolet 2500HD.

    My question is, with both companies wanting my time and energy as well as advertisment how do I rule who's better? Both companies have given me the pro's but hardly any con's. I've spoken to several experienced 'Hired" guys, but I need "real guys" testimonies. Can Anyone help? :help:

    I would go with western. They have been around for alot of years, and all I use is western equipment. I have had minimal problems with the equipment, and overall I just like the performance. Beyond that western has always been a trusted name in plowing. As far as boss goes you hear good and bad stories with thier equipment, as with western I have hardly heard as many bad stories. But in the end the choice is yours..............I just think the western 8ft pro plow would look nice on the front of that chevy...... :drinkup:

    I'm sponsored by BOSS. Their name is all over my new equipment. Plow and spreader.

    It's just that it's not a PAID sponsorship... :(

    Well, this is a bit hard to understand, since these companies have their names in large letters all over their equipment anyway. In more than 20 years, I've never heard of anything like this, let alone from two different companies "biting at the bit" like it is for some star athlete or something. I would like John Allen's input on this. He was the official snow removal contractor for the 2002 Olympic Games in Utah. Now, for something like that, I could see a corporation allowing the USE of some of their equipment in exchange for them being able to endorse THEMSELVES as the "official plow of the '02 Olymics", or "The official snow removal equipment of the '02 Olymics". I remember when Jeep did this for the U.S. Ski Team.
    This subject has been discussed many times before on Lawnsite regarding turf equip. sponsorships. I don't believe anyone has ever actually recieved anything like this. Oh yeah, you can BUY the large Exmark decals, but so what...we are paying money to advertise for THEM.
    Again, show me a contract and I'd seriously consider it too if I could get a discount on the products I buy from the companies.
