Yes. I am assuming that most have started out small. I am looking at investing about $5000 for a plow/spreader and enough salt for the season. I have a quote for a 7.5' plow for $3600. Does this seem high?
Around here $3600 for a 7.5 is high (even with installation). How long it takes to pay for is going to depend on wether or not your doing residential or commercial. Also how large a lot(s) your plowing and if your working buy the hour.
Dont know if this will help My personal blade is 7.5 Myer Bought in Nov. 95 I dont abuse my equipment but expect it to work hard when asked to This same Ez is now on its 3rd truck I tend to buy clean gmc or chevy 1/2 ton & change them any way the only thing changed was the frame mount This plow doesnt owe me a thing I plow 4-5 3000 sq drives per hour 40+pr truck I love my myers Funny Ive had mismatched setups for years but myer was always doing the pushin I pay &2600-2900 installed
