    I am a firefighter with 9 years snow removal experience. I have a IL Non CDL 'B' & Nextel. I have experience with the following:
    CAT, Volvo, Case, and New Holland wheeled end loaders
    heavy duty salters/plows

    I have worked for the last 7 years with my current contact. He lost two of his major accounts and his kids have grown up so he is not looking for as many employees. All of his accounts were large trucking terminals in Bedford Park, Bridgeview and Markham.

    I have a diesel truck but do not currently have the funds for a plow. I have a trailer to haul a bobcat or ATV if you need.

    I am looking to establish new contacts in the area for the next snow season. I work in Waukegan and live in Tinley Park. I am not interested in residential only commerical. This summer I am looking into upgrading to a CDL.

    I work east side of chicago and oak lawn as well as south suburbs. Anyone looking for a subcontractor? I have an F250 SD 3/4 ton 4x4 with a Boss 8" straight.

    I am still debating putting a plow on my daily driver. Having the Diesel in my setup, most mfr's do not spec anything bigger than a 7'6". I would prefer at least an 8 with my turning radius. I have more searching to do over on the Ford side of the site.
