Pick Ups In Maine, The Four Wheel Drive With A Plow Truck Kind.

Pick Ups In Maine, The Four Wheel Drive With A Plow Truck Kind.

Happens a lot, pick up trucks in Maine being bought by a new out of state buyer.

Who thinks he will need a four wheel drive to travel the roads in winter.To survive one. To keep the dooryard, driveway clear of the white fluffy snow.

You can spend some serious money for a new pick up truck in Maine. And there are so many out there with pick ups wearing the yellow, red, silver snow plows that just hiring it out is a common option. For early morning busting through snow banks.

So is a small snowblower to carve out a tunnel, roadway in / out.

The walk behind kind or the back / front loaded on a garden tractor or larger. With a power take off to run it from the tractor of whatever size. So you clear your yard easily on your own. But also do many down the street in a bang bang bang row. As an extra source of income for a much needed service.

This winter those plowing snow per storm made a healthy chunk of change. Someone owning a payloader, front end machine could clean up In fact many I have talked with said property home owners were literally running down the street, waving money. To flag down and coerce, coax, plead with the operator. Help. Please plow, clean me out.

To bring their machines over to their driveways until the regular guy returns. Or the home owner gets a solution of their own to tackle the snow flakes pilling up out front. All around the Maine property. 

The contract snow plow drive enterprises lost their shirt this year. Too much snow and too often in the deliveries.

 Many of the oldest farm properties In Maine come with a plow truck.

Unregistered, not road worthy but still making the driveway circuit to plow the driveway after each snow storm.

Many would not pass inspection, have lots of rust and patch jobs from past dings, dents, corrosion.

But fire up, run like a charm most of the time when fired up, turned loose. 

The roads in Maine are kept free of snow and the state, local muncipalities do a cracker jack job of keeping things moving. All season tires, front wheel drive cars have little problems getting around.

Finding the traction to putter around the highways, byways in small Maine towns. We know how to handle snow. Have the equipment, the driving experience. And get good, are practiced, veterans because snow happens in Maine. One of our favorite seasons.

So arm yourself with the ice scraper, jumper cables, a bag of kitty litter and maine war hero veteran winter photocheck the radiator for plenty of antifreeze.

Fill up the windshiled washer and come on Old Man Winter.

We travel around, don’t stay inside and hibernate winters in Maine.

Just another season, no polar bears in Maine winters. Dress warm. We’re still outside most of the time like the other three seasons.

So shop for a good pre-owned pickup truck with a Fisher, Meyers, Boss, some kind of angle snow plow.

Or consider hiring Fred or Bob down the road to handle that task of snow plowing driveways. On your new retirement, vacation home in Maine.

The one you bought for a song compared to the price tags hanging off the property listings where live out of state. You are headed in the right direction moving to Maine.

While you just clean off the deck, shovel the walkways, stairways on your home in Maine. Let one of the locals do the expert job of moving the snow around. To careful ly put it where by spring it is gone like Frosty. To call it good. Enough exercise for the day until the next dusting, Maine winter snow storm arrives right on schedule.
