    hey every one. new here. I have a Q about snow plowing in a city I was told that need to have snow plow ins.. do any of you have to have ins on your snow plowing co.? tell me about it before I go talk to a ins man and what I need to know to ask about and what not to tell or ask..

    I own a 74 dodge 3/4 ton 4x4 gears 4.10 with 400 motor with racing cam in it. have a NorthMan snow plow. I find that northman is not in business at all where can I find parts? my plow is a 7.5 foot. it still in good working order.. right now I am making new mounts on truck for plow hook up so it has a better nice looking.

    want to get in some snow plowing business and how much should I be change on how big a parking lot is? I have two tractors that can do some snow plowing one tractor can do a 28 foot 3pt snow plow on back. even on front too

    snow Jaw.. Steve.

    Thanks, phillyplowking1. I noticed that too on his post on Elements of Business but let it go after that last fiasco when somebody claimed something like a 14' plow on a 3/4(?) ton. I wondered if maybe he meant two 8' plows.

    Welcome to Plowsite :waving:

    That Dodge sounds like a pretty stout plow truck,except for the racing cam.

    Northman plows are still pretty popular around here,especially with the new truck dealers,as the are pretty cheap.Haven't seen many problems with them though,they seem to hold up as well as anything else.

    You need insuarnce for just about anything.It may be easier to get,and substantially cheaper if you just sub for someone else.You may have to shop around,as a lot of companies aren't even writing new policies anymore.
