    I thought this was a good question for you "big" guys (not really i mean big business guys w/ loaders and skids etc. ) :salute:
    What point do you bring all loaders back to your yard.
    today i passed a local high school where they used a NH compact loader the whole season they were loading it up on a trailer....few days later i passed the districts bus yard and the loader was sittin' there with the buses snow attachments off just the bucket. hmmm.. Are they prepping it for spring??
    honestly i dont know if it was rented it didnt have any proof (lettering/stickers) on it that made it look like it was so i think they own it..
    We still have snow coming though! This is MICHIGAN it could be 45* today then snow tomorrow :dizzy:

    April 15th for us. Sometimes a week sooner if the forecast allows us too.

    I just let mine sit there all summer, nothing like free storage. If I need it for something, I know where I can find it.

    Already moved my big pusher home. There shouldn't be any big snows left that smaller machines can't handle, so I figured I better get it home and service it. I still have skids and backhoes out and probably won't move them until first week of April unless I need to use them for other work. Of course everyone who owns there machines checks the forecast around the first week of April to decide. Those who rented usually can get away with using trucks by April.

    Billing during snow season

    I would like to get some input on how some of you set up your billing for the snow season, do you bill out right after storms? standby fees? and how much time allowed for payment due to cost of operation during the snow season? On my contracts I bill out within 7 days and due upon reciept.
