    I was just curious as to what everyone would do, When going to plow and working under someone else would you plow with a vehical that they have that you could use or would you rather use your own vehical. I was just curious, for you have the option here of useing oher equipment and what not or you can use your own personal equipment. They both have there ups adn down, so what do you think?

    by the way hehe its lightly snowing here:drinkup: 2-3inches

    I would rather drive my own, Because I know how it was taken care of, and I have everything that I need in it...but if it pays the same I would drive his...;)

    I would definitly drive his, less wear and tear on your equipment. Even if his equipment hasn't been maintained properly he's on the hook to get it fixed not you. The less repair bills you have to deal with the better.

    Depends on the money...typically you get paid more when you have your own equipment. If I could get the same money driving their I would, save the wear and tear, but I bet that is unlikely.

    Around here it's tough to find good drivers/employees, ones who know what they are doing and don't destroy the vehicles. They typically make 50% more because I don't have to hold it back to save for repairs. DRIVE IT LIKE YOU OWN IT! Just my opinion... :D

    But if anyone around is paying $65 an hour for a driver only...let me know!
