I know its been awhile I have been away working my *** off lawn cutting and cleanups and such. I still have my 48" yazoo kees walkbehind hydro, but now I also have a 61" zeroturn yazoo kees that I bought used with 178 hrs. I bought a new 8x16 enclosed pace summit trailer "black" to match the truck.
Hopefully I can make enought to pay the plow off since the trailer is paid for this season.
I have about 35 clients now and still growing. Keep in mind that I am still working at the rental store here at 9 mile Rent All.
Only thing differnt that I plan on doing is advertisement word of mouth built my business to this point where I am at now, but lets face it not every client brings in more business wish it was that easy. Going to try to hit more larger lawn areas further north.
I have some of my own work for snow that I had for years now, mostly residentials I picked up a few stores, pizza places, lots and such. But I am subbing my self out this year for another guy. I have a meeting with him next week to see the route and what he has me to do, so far I have 5 to 6 hours of work offerd from him I am not sure on pay but I am guessing 65 to 85 an hour.
Last year I helped out a freind and I could have used a plow then, but instead I was in a front loader freezing my *** off, but not no more.
My goal for the winter season is to make enough to pay the plow off and bank in some extra cash for spring.
Advantages in both places I would suppose, it would be hard for someone to plow a storage unit place without a vplow. I can stack snow higher and cleanup faster then a straight plow .. each time you plow your limited left or right so your straight blade cant really get the straggling lines left behind without multiple swipes. I can V the plow and scoop the peices making cleaning faster.. now being a 8.2 inch width plow may cause some problems with narrow driveways but they are screwed cause I won't touch them. Or use a snowblower depending on how long the driveway is.
