    Hey i'm from WNY too. This is awesome all paid contracts and no snow. Just think of all the gas and breakdown money your saving. I'm a little bored and i seem to be drinking alot more lately but it will snow,,well maybe it will.

    I would have posted earlier but my old puter crashed and i had to buy this new one.

    I am from Grand Island, N.Y. and actually looking for used plow parts for a 1991 Jeep Cherokee. I have a Meyer tm 6.5 power angle plow but need the mounts for the truck and pump. TW truck equipers on Elk in Buffalo wanted almost $900 for the mounts for the Jeep. If I cant find used I would buy a welder and try myself before paying $900 that is insane.

    hi nieghbors all of my plowing is downtown,north buffalo,amherst.there is plenty of plowing to go around i've been
    plowing for 19 years ,and i still love it.i don't even feel any guilt for collecting my money ,and we haven't plowed one flake. hey it's just like my auto insurance,not happy to see the bill but you have to have it.if a new customer calls me this late in the season i charge for the whole season. and im not cheap, i have to get my price or it's not worth it to me. if they pay my price ,then they own me. take care. ;)
