Got the first snowfall last night here in Toronto, very minor but still snow on ground and roofs, when are you guys ( who work outdoors) planning calling it a year, I gotta couple more block additions to do then that's it, time to break out the curing blankets then can catch up on my own homes needs.

We got our first snow today also but we won't be shutting down, have a new house to start tomorrow if the brick got there. We'll tent some of it if we are forecasted to have a long string of below freezing days.

A good plow route can have ~100 drives, $25-35 per drive per plow, 2X plow over 6 inches, and it's serious money. Pounds out the truck suspensions, though. And that whole salt, sand blast the underside thing:whistling

30,000 for shocks?
They're really good shocks:whistling

I'm not serious about the maintenance part. It's tough on the transmission and all the front end, but those are things you just make sure are ready during the off season. The people I know that plow a lot usually have a back up plow truck that will get them through a bad storm if they need it, whether it's from something breaking or they went off the road and it needs some fixing before it can be used again.

A good route can make a lot of money, but it usually takes some years to build up to having a really good route.
