Just curious as to how long has everyone has been plowing/involved in the snow indystry? I have been doing it about 10 yrs. with a couple yrs off about 6 yrs. ago. Let's see how many years expirience we all have combined!plowing! plowing! :feedback

Started as a shoveler when I was 15, and worked for others until I bought my own plow 6 years ago. I have 3 trucks with plows now, 2 that go out regularly, and 1 back-up.

This is my fourth year in my own truck. I had been plowing (shotgun with dad or uncle) for 2 years before that, as the highly respected shoveler:haha

Gee- I'm a newbie by far then!!!

This is my first year doing full time plowing! with commercial accounts.

I have 5+ years doing residential on the side, and I grew up in the Catskil mountains, so I kinda had to learn how to mange snow there, then I got lucky enough to move into the snow belt 15 years ago and have had to do my own for abut 10 now.

So I guess combined time behind the wheel- 7 years- time behind a stick plow- countless!!!

This will make the 17th season snowplowing with a truck, and 23rd snowplowing and snowblowing if you count my pre-drivers license years behind the wheel of the tractors and blowers in my old neighborhood.

Add a few more to that for riding shotgun with my Dad and being angle boy and shovel boy. :D :rolleyes:

My Dad let me start plowing the driveway with our farm tractor at age 7, many many moons ago. I bought my first truck at 18, plowing with a radio and heat was a luxury!

I started plowing commercially at 18, that adds up to 25 years of commercial plowing. Although I did a few driveways with the tractor, I don't really count that, but I'd have 36 years plowing.

Can I be that old???:headwall

This is the 4th winter. I learned to plow by buying a 7.5' Fisher for the Dodge 150 in Oct, 2000. The next year added the 3500 with 9' Fisher plow and 2-yd Fisher sander. The following year passed out some Magic Salt samples. Started making and selling Magic this year. Retired to full time plowing this month. Before that I'd never sat in a truck with a plow on it. I'd never even owned a 4wd vehicle.

Even before I bought the plow I was on Chuck's truck site learning.

It just keeps growing.
