Plowing snow - who does?

Who plows snow with your trucks?

Anyone have a state contract?

Curious.

I used to plow a parking lot in Rockville with 2- Bobcats, 1- Case Front loader and a Toyota SR-5 4wd -

All that's gone now - but considering putting a plow on my F-250.

I run a plowing operation in northeast ohio. we run about 7-8 trucks and some ski-steers and bachoes depending on snow.

Most of our trucks are 250 and 350s

We have 5 locations that we plow with our company trucks. I usually handle 2 sites myself, but unfortunetly it's not with a PSD but my gutless 2500HD Chevy work truck. We have one F-250 with a Fisher ExtremeV plow and it is the best plow truck out of the "fleet".

No commercial plowing but I use my F-350 to keep the farm plowed out. My driveway is about 4,500 feet long plus I plow the well roads on my property as well. I currently run a Blizzard plow and have had great luck with it.

I do a decent bit of plowing. I just bought a fisher Xtreme V in stainless steel to go on the stroke. I'll get some pics up when I pick it up.

Wow, very nice! That'll make moving the snow much easier than a regular straight blade. I can't wait for the snow to start falling, I have been pricing out driveways and parking lots all week and if we get some snow I'll be one happy dude. I run a Fisher MM1 straight blade on my truck, one day I'll have a v-plow.
