Default Snow Plowing!!

anyone here use there Trucks to snow plow?? I got a BOSS 8ft 6in super duty XT with wings for a plow, i traded it on a Snow Way mega V more like mega junk the darn thing wouldnt raise and they dont have a fix for it yet, so im getting my BOSS back its like new, also going to trade my Fisher tailgate 1000 spreader for a Boss TGS 1100 has more capasity and i got a gift card for the BOSS dealer so what the heck. what do you guys got for equipment and plowing jobs?? I do alot of driveways and walmarts parking lot,dad does a huge housing development! had a guys complain that $35 was alot for his 100ft driveway so i said well ok cya next storm, we got our next storm and i plowed everyone else out and waited to about 4pm to plow his house and when i got there he was shoveling his driveway and he looked real happy! well i started plowing and he was really glad he put his shovel away and watched me plow got done rolled my window down and he handed me $40 instead of $35 he said thank you and im happy you came cause shoveling sucks!!!

I've got a 8ft diamond str8 blade on my 99 cummins and a 8ft fisher str8 blade on my fathers 99 cummins (put it away,he has become a snowbird and migrated to florida for the winter w/ the truck)and a 7ft fisher str8 blade on my 95 f150 gasser(4 sale) but this winter i gave up all my residential and commercial plowing because the rates around her are just pitiful and i am not plowing for just enough to pay for my fuel some guy's around here are doing residential driveway's for $10 a storm, I just plow my own yard and a buddy's down the street because he store my bug every winter in his barn for me but it still takes me 2 hrs to clean up after a storm (1 1/2 hrs for my yard alone)

My dad ran a Boss V 8.5' IIRC and 3 8' Fisher strights, but got rid of them all after I moved away and he sold his place in town. We did a few commercial lots, but mostly gas stations. The only driveways we did where our friends place that where convenient and normally only form $5-$10 but that was 5 years ago. I miss plowing that was always a good time except the one time we where at it for about 32 hrs. straight. Some times when I go back home I'll help out my buddies that plow.
