• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Does anybody due anything really creative to make money during the winter season other than plowing? I was thinking of icle/roof ice removal using a hot pressure washer. How about other ideas?

If there isn't too much snow on the ground, you could clean up fallen limbs and branches. We had a winter a few years back with a lot of ice storms, and decent 40 degree weather in between. I kept pretty busy cutting up big limbs that fell. Even a few rotten trees that came down completely. You can also trim trees. Those telescopic chainsaw attachments for weed whackers are great for trimming.

We line up tree work in the fall and put it off until the winter. The last few years we have kept very busy cutting trees, fallen limbs and clearing lots. This year there is too much snow on the ground to get out and do the work. Now those customers are upset that we havent done there jobs yet. Seems you can't keep anyone happy. But we usually try to keep busy through christmas doing cleanups and then we start doing tree work and brush clearing, firewood delivery, fixing up gravel and stone driveways. Just My two cents
