    A snowplower's biggest fear.
    I would say my biggest fear is flat tire during plowing ops. Always when you need to be gettin' stuff done now! and in the worst conditions.
    Whats your worst fear?

    That some important part of the truck or plow breaks at night while plowing and while i can't get a replacement for it right away. Since this is my only truck.

    no real fears plowing snow, always have extra equiptment sitting around ready, my biggest fear is falling off a roof and being disabled and loosing everything i have worked hard for. if you break something plowing it can always be fixed or replaced.

    My Biggest fear would be hitting some kid or any person for that matter,pet are near the top of my list as well.

    Damage a truck, break a plow , oh well those can be fixed or repaired, but a person or pet that's a whole other story.

    My biggest fear is that a Democrat will make it into to the Whitehouse and we will all be speaking a foreign language in 10 years....

    Snakes. Lots of snakes.

    Or pitching my truck off the side of my driveway and getting it wedged in between a few trees. Its my daily driver and I find its very easy to get cocky with a full size truck and an 8' plow.

    Same here. Sure, I worry about the breakdowns (single truck) but in the scheme of things anything wrong with the truck is insignificant.

    We run subs so my list might be a little different

    1. Sidewalks crew calling in and then leaving property.
    2. Plow guy calling in on property then going to do his own stuff.
    3. Storm Stalling just after we are 1/2 done and dropping another 1/2 an inch on the VERY clean lot.

    Biggest fear is lawsuit.
    2nd is more republicans.
    3rd is more democrats.

    How about someone that actually thinks about each issue and has his own ideas instead of the stupid party line crapola. I like some republican and some democrat ideas. Hate welfare, love the environment. Like small govt, but want to help people that can't help themselves.

    I'm going to third that.

    My biggest plowing fear? Not getting snow, althought down here in NC your fears will likely be reality. When I lived in Mass and plowed, my biggest fear was my one truck breaking down and it did happen once right after I was done with my driveways.

    Remember, a breakdown can always be fixed, a little frustration yes, but fixable. My biggest fear would be getting in an accident and not be able to provide for my family and losing everything I have worked twenty years for. i.e (house, college savings, trucks and equipment) That will make you not sleep at night!:dizzy:
