Unless all of the drives you plan on plowing are in a very very small area then a tractor will take forever. A pickup you can go job to job at 30-40-50mph in a heated cab and make quick work of snow removal, an open station tractor you will be freezing your butt off going job to job at 10mph and the customer will have called somebody else to plow for them because they wanted it done before 4pm......

A tractor with a loader is great for piling snow up high but for quickly clearing a driveway or smallish area a pickup is hard to beat.

I really like to lay out the rates when I come in with the tractor to clean up the mess left by a pick-up... If you want half a job done the truck is a great place to start.

Operator error. Just as easy to leave a mess with a tractor as it is with a truck.

Yep... and it goes hand in hand with the quick and easy type of operator. I find they make it about half way through the season here... or the early March North easter that backs it's way in... and fills everything 3' deep...and then someone has to come in and clean up.
Done lots of it over the years. I love those storms...

If a truck with snowplow is leaving that much of a mess, the driver simply is p-poor operator!

I plowed for many years with a tuck and could get a lot or driveway clean as a whistle.
