Yeah even the old snow way we have is like that. It has a mind of its own and works when it decides to. I've never personally ran a Boss so I cant comment on them. I just wish it would freaking snow around hear. The 23 we got an ice storm and yesterday it was almost 70. Stupid weather is killing me around here.

I havent plowed a driveway in seven years. I work for a local college and all I plow now is lots and main roads. Dad only plows a few driveways but I would not call them average. One of them is three miles long and all up a steep hillside.

I have a Sno-Way 29T. I plow 14 residential drives and 2 commercial contracts this season.

It's a big jump for me. Last year I had 2 driveways and one commercial lot.

I subbed last year to bring in some extra $. This year I'm only doing the sidewalk for the same company. They liked the liquid deice I use and asked me to do the walks only.

It's a good deal, they provide the equipment, I provide the deice liquid and they know my accounts come first. I'm sure they will buy their own next year, I figure I'd strike while the iron was hot...
