    I usually have 2 trucks to spare. One with a tailgate spreader. Both are very reliable and utilize only very experienced drivers. Call on me anytime.

    I have been in the business for 6 years, started with a snowblower and some sidewalks. Moved up to a 4 wheel ATV and plow. Then to plow trucks with Vbox spreaders. On to Class C (class C IL/DL)truck setups with plows and spreaders. I owned a plow truck for a year...needed a better quality truck. I got my experience with heavy machinery in the military. I am capable of maintaining some heavy equipment also.

    I do not currently have any equipment, I drive for another family company. I am getting tired of the family favoritism going on. I am looking for someone that needs a driver during the day, as I work 11pm to 7am. I live in Tinley Park, and have residential, commercial, and mainly large trucking firm experience.

    If needed I have a 1/2 ton 4x4 with a Class 4 hitch and a 7pin.
