    A 3hp tractor must be pretty small.

    A few teenagers on here have some cool setups. Some worth over 50k. Your far from being the only one.

    Do you clear driveways all night? Is this something you do with a friend or do you hire someone to help?

    Okay so its not a huge business. My dad is the bank, the mechanic and the johndeere dealership. I am the business owner and operator of the 3032E. My brother is just the operator of the little 23 horse. Its not a huge business but yeah i take it pretty seriously and yes i go late hours into the night when i have to. Thanks for asking

    Well at least you have the work ethic to try this. I would have a hard time letting my 13 year old miss school the following day. You have your whole life to work and only a short period of time to be a kid.

    IMO school is first. You usually can't make more then a good wage with your hands. There are many that do very well but the majority just does ok for the amount of hours they put it.
