    Use a snowblower on the resi's you can handle and charge more.

    To me there is no "too difficult to handle" type situation. It's just a matter of how you attack it.

    My philosophy is, never tell a client "I can't", or "I don't know". It shows a sign of weakness or lack of ability. If there is a job I can't do (which is rare) then it's " I will find someone of quality to do it for you."
