    Well just out of my curiostity I was wondering at what age did everyone get there first plow truck?

    I have a truck just no plow. More then likely I will not put a plow on my truck and try to find a strictly work truck for plowing.

    Lets see, I got mine a week ago when I was 31, but I am 32 now. I have been using my brothers truck helping him with his accounts for 3 years now. Its nice, learn on his, and buy my own and make money myself. With his most of the money went to him unless I got a pick up driving by.

    I was 19 when I bought my first truck ('99 Chevy Silverado Z71) and six months later when I was 20, I bought my first snow plow (Meyer ST 7.5'). Almost three years later now, I still have the same truck but about two month's ago I upgraded to a brand new Boss SuperDuty 7.5', in which today was the first snow I got to use it in.

    I was 14 when I got my first plow truck. 1984 Chevy K20 350/TH400 with an 8 foot Meyer plow. The truck needed a resto, so I spent the next 9 months doing that. Got my temps at 15 and a half, then license at 16. I am on plow truck#4 now, lol

    I was 19 I bought a new 06 ram and put a 8' western pro plow on it. Now I am 21 and still using the same truck but going to upgrade to a diesel soon. I have been around snowplowing since I could walk though and always rode along with my father till I could drive myself.

    I was 19, it was an old beat up 79 F150 short box w/ a 7' Western. Truck was quite the POS, but it all worked. Over the next 8 years I plowed snow as a way to supplement my income. I replaced almost every part on that truck over the years (motor, trans, body, etc), including the plow (twice), once to a MM E60 and then to a Sno-way.
    I am on truck # 5, but man I miss that that old truck, it could really push some snow.
