    We have some stations we can pick and choose which ones to do they range from small to some big(ish) truck stops

    What would your ideal set up from scratch be

    Not overthinking it with a JCB. The crab & all wheel steer and ability to stack with the boom. Will make for a very easy season

    one of the problems with gas station is where to put the stacked snow. without knowing the stations in question its hard to say what equipment would be best. I did a couple with a quick mart that had no place to put the snow. and they didn't want to pay for me to remove the snow. That brings up the point that all gas stations by me never want to pay. they are very cheap so to bring in equipment that cost a lot of money will not pay off IMO. You also don't want an employe thats going to damage all the fill spots that are on the ground. its like having multiple man hole covers and makes for a bad day if you start puling them out. I don't do them any more they just didn't pay in NY.

    I'm with GV. Plow on a truck. I service gas stations and wouldn't waste my time with anything else. They're bad enough with trucks. Unless you live in a very slow paced rural community where there isn't a need for you to be in and out, don't over think it or waste money on something completely un necessary. A quad? By the time you unload it and dick around you could be finished with the truck and on to the next one.
