    If you need to ask you might better sub it out or work for someone and learn the ropes of plowing first.1/2 the battle is having the right equipment,I know from your previous posts that you refuse to listen to us,and insist on running an inadequete truck(1500 2wd) to plow with,so you lost on that end.This is why i say sub it out,at least your customers have a better chance of getting serviced.

    I think truck1500 is jerking everybody around. He asks questions to start a thread and then never adds anything to the advice everyone gives him. I agree, he makes a big deal about buying a cheap plow for a 1500 forever, then all of a sudden he has a 1 ton and an '03 2500. He was advised forever about using a 1500 then, not willing to get the right truck for the job, now he has bought 4 more trucks? Something don't compute. He even asks where to buy salt. Get rid of this guy.
