    Hey, Sounds like kind of light gear for that many drives.But I know a local kid that does 5-10 with a shovel when he gets his wheetys into him.If ya take your time and like you say stay ahead of it I guess it could work.At least your overhead will be low.Make sure not to lowball yourself to much on price.What looks like profit can soon melt away when ya have a broken rod hanging out the side of your engine!!!Randy

    You gonna drive around with a trailer during the storms??? You're gonna find any big storms that the John deere isn't gonna cut it and the trailer will slow you down. Might consider sticking with the Ariens and getting a single stage and have someone else with you.
