    Picked Up A new account today:redbounce It is the largest single plow job I have ever had. Plus it was bid right.:nod:

    It is a little big for me but I got some great backup to help me when needed.

    Here is a picture.

    JD Dave is right, hope your getting a rental loader or backhoe or you own one because those windrows are going to get too heavy for a truck

    congrats on the new account. Is that some sort of travel center/ truck stop? looks like it will be a fairly straight forward push as long as the place isn't full of trucks

    Thanks for all the congrats guys. Yes it is a truck stop and it will be full of trucks when it is snowing heavy, I am sure. Our plan is to keep the isles clear and the pumps open with the truck and then bring in the heavy equipment for the cleanup after the storm is over.

    Yeah, what did you bid it at? I want to criticize the living crap out of you for bidding to high or to low. :laughing:

    Good luck. Looks like it will be a fairly easy clean up. Sounds like you got everything you need.

    Nice pick up. It's always nice to land that "big" job and then be able to get the job done. Feels good at the end of the day.

    That place looks fairly straight forward with plenty of places to stack snow.

    Man i dont think a truck could keep that place open during a storm. But you will find out soon enough. Congrate !:)

    I think he would be ok with a plow hanging on the front and one of those very well built SUPERPLOW's on the back. :laughing:

    That is alot of area for a pick up. Myself I'd be using some heavy iron with a 10' pusher min. Nice grab, but be prepared!!! Rember when you need backup they too will be behind!!!
