New truck - 2005 2500 HD Silverado with a 8'2" Boss V-Plow
For all those members on the fence about going from a smaller truck to a fullsize truck like you have, how has the change effected your view of your business and how will it effect the ways your business provides services now?

Changes the whole picture of your business... makes you look bigger (because you have a bigger truck), and not only that, you are able to pull extra weight and bigger trailer if needed, also you are able to do some plowing with a bigger truck. Not everybody will be committed to plowing because there is no snow in their area, but here in the north, it's pretty much a no brainer. I won't have to answer I don't know to what do you do in the winter. Not only a full size truck, you can also accommodate for future crew expansion since you would have the room for them to get in side your truck and things like that.
At the moment, I can't tell you the exact benefit of getting a bigger truck, because I was using a truck that wasn't really my own. I had to increase my cash flow to do so. I was pretty fortunate to be given a truck which i didn't really have to pay much but the gas and a few repairs. Now, I am under my own insurance, gas, repairs...
