I started out working with a ATV. I didnt have the money for a plow, and the guy I worked for didnt have a spare truck. I wanted to work so he asked if I had a tow hitch and a 2" ball. So he gave me his trailer and the ATV and I did sidewalks for all his accounts. I bought good Carhartt coveralls, warm jacket, insulated boots, electric gloves(wired to battery) and helmet to keep snow off me and it kept me warm.
