    Hi Joe -welcome to the place where people make money from weather that most people hate. I could tell you a whole bunch, but the easiest would be for you to review posts here (&quot;Show Posts &gt;&gt; ALL&quot;) and gleen from all the comments. There is also a professional organization, SIMA, that can be joined and apparently has a wealth of information. I plan to join some day soon...<br>Regards, John

    I think the plowing rate varries from location to location. My best advice would be to get a few drives and maybe a lot. The just start plowing, you will get the hang of it. Thats what my dad did 50 years ago, 50 years ago there was no lawnsite or SIMA.<p>Geoff
