    Hi there I am new to the industry, this is my first year plowing and I work for a guy that doesn't like to share to much information about his business, which I understand. I was considering doing my own plowing and next season, doing driveways and small lots. I was wondering approximetly how much per month it would be to maintain a 03' F150 4x4 with a 7'6" blade on it. Any input is appreciated.

    This is a great site I have been learning alot.

    That's a kinda hard question to answer. Depending on how much you use your truck, and other circumstances will all vary. I can tell ya the bills can add up fast, but if your set up right, the money you earn can far surpass the cost of maintenance. Good luck..you will learn lots hear.

    You have the maintenance records for your truck.
    you have the gas log.
    you know how many hrs you plowed.
    Your INS fees
    etc, etc,

    Do your homework and then come back and tell us your operating cost.
    as everyones is diffrent.

    ps. welcome...:waving:
