    Hello people, I am a 23 year old from northern michigan and i'm starting a plow buisness this winter. I really dont know much about rates and other things to expect and i would appreciate any advice anyone has to offer. Fill me in on some of those tips i need to get started. Whats the best plow out there for my F-250? Is it worth it to get a salt spreader? What should I charge for commercial lots/ residential drives/ shoveling walkways? How should I work out billing, per plow, per year, per hour and how much? And anything else I can't even think to ask. I can't wait for the winter bring on the snow.
