    Kemmer-

    I'd assume you didn't plow...right? We only got about 1/2' here, my trigger is 1 1/2".

    ya no where close to plowing, we got like 1/4 of an inch, i was hoping for at least an inch so there was a chance of having the guy i sub for call me and tell us we can go out even tho his trigger is 1.5"

    Matt your triggers 1.5"? for residential? i cant believe your customers would agree for something so low lol, good job selling it to them

    Ryan-

    Yeah, most of them agreed to 1.5" (paved). They're really high end clients, and like to have their drives plowed when there's more than just a dusting. Beleive it or not, there were a few guys near me who plowed their drives this morning :eek: ...not enough for me, most of the snow was melted by the time I got home from School anyways.:dizzy:

    When I was out driving around last night, I saw several outfits gearing up with the plows on their trucks and such. Seemed to me like a huge waste of time. If we even got what you could consider a liight dusting, that would be a lot. We mainly got ice and sleet anyways. Just made for a lot of accidents.

    ive only seen a couple places with any salt this year :)

    I too am supprised with the plowing of 1.5", seems like nothing really. Most of my customers i start at 4-5" or more for snowblowing at least, anything less theyll usually run it over with their cars or shovel themselves for free. These are 300-650k homes too.

    I get a few that still want it done at like 3" or more but thats it, when its 20", everyone possible calls, i get backed up, and just a bunch of angry people who wanted it done yesterday, hell when nj is in a state of emergency these people think they need to leave 3hrs after the blizzard is done:realmad:

    Yea I have a 1" trigger for my commercial lot and it did snow about a half an inch two mornings in a row. So that is just like one inch so i just said the hell with it and dropped the blade LOL. I was surprised to see how big my piles were when i was done. I will post a couple of pics here tomorrow. That was such a releif to get that out of my system.
