    I am from the Niagara area, use a BOSS V-Plow to do commercial, industrial, and residential work.

    Are there any other girls that plow? I always kind of assumed it was a guy thing as I have never met a girl who wanted to plow. In all honesty, I don't know any girls that I would turn loose with a plow/battering ram, as all the girls I know are TERRIBLE drivers!
    OK not all but there are a few (guys too!), well, you all know the type I am referring to--the ones where if you catch a ride with them, you have both feet firmly planted on the floor, your left arm holding the armrest and the right curled around the handle on the door!

    I, for one, am glad to see that there is at least one girl out there who wants to do it. When I asked my g/f(now ex) if she was interested in learning to drive my second truck, she looked at me like I was from the moon or something...:D

    I have sent an MSN invite to you.

    We had a girl plow for us a few winters. She did a good job. She did get kinda comfy in the leather equipped ram though. Often plowed in her pj's and slippers. One night she got stuck.... ;)

    Hi all! Am situated just north of Toronto. Would fall into the newbie category as this is my first year and will probably make it mostly research.

    I have several questions that I'm compiling and will post later.

    In the meantime, a HUGE THANKS to all as this site is an incredible source of information for someone (like me) who truly had no clue what the difference between a V and straight plow was before getting in here! Now I know almost too much! For each of the major queries I had (insurance, pricing, trigger, contracts, subs, op. costs) I have seen several very informative posts.

    For anyone in my area who is also new, or to Plowgirl please send me a message as it would be great to get a local group together at some point.


    Thanks, GL.

    CET, we may very well be. How can I contact you to provide my email address - I would very much appreciate some of your time - I'd of course be willing to compensate you somehow (beverage perhaps!).

    Thanks, G.L.
