    Hello everyone, I just signed up and happy to be a member now. I've owned a small lawncare here in WI for the last 5 years and I now want to venture into snowplowing this year. I don't have a heavy duty truck but it should be good enough, (98 f-150 off-road), what is the best way to get started? I will be working alone so how many do you think I can do with that truck, I imagine it will take time to learn how to do a nice efficient job though. Do you typically do pretty well in winter do to the fact it doesn't snow all the time, you just never know! I love the freedom of being my own boss in the lawncare field but really want to plow now so it's more of a year around business. I would really appreciate any useful advice from you guys, I know you all have alot of experience so I am all ears. THANK YOU!
