    Today I finally went and put a deposit on a plow for my new truck. I ended up going with a Boss 8.2 V. It's getting installed The 29th of this month. Then this afternoon I got a call from an apartment complex that I put a application in to be a contractor for landscaping and plowing. Everything was approved. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting the contract. I have some inside contacts within the company to help me out with winning the bid. I'm really excited for this winter, it's my first year doing commercial plowing and it's going to be an adventure!!

    Good for you, and good luck! You are right about winter on the way. I bought 2 plows last week on the hottest week of the year. lol Also picked up a couple signed contracts. Good luck, and good job getting prepared well in advance.

    Hey, best of luck to ya! I don't think there's anything better than getting out of bed at 4:00 am and seeing the snow falling, and jumping aboard your plow rig.:drinkup:

    Unfortunately, I lost my major contract this year. The owner bought a truck and plow for his franchise, so he won't need me anymore.:cry:

    I think it's gonna be a slow year for me this year.
