If you live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, you know that every year there is a battle with the snow. That’s why having a snow plowing business in Lancaster is a profitable idea. However, you can’t use just any truck for a snow plowing business. Here are two great suggestions for a snowplow business.
Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT
This is probably one of the best used service trucks in Lancaster County you can use for a snowplow business. In this year, Ford introduced a fully boxed, 95% steel ladder frame on the F-250s. Pair that with 925 lbs./ft of diesel torque, a 440 horsepower engine, and a spacious cab and interior and you’ve got a monster workhorse for your snow plowing business.
Chevrolet Silverado 1500
You can save a little money over the F-250 with this truck. If you get the four-wheel drive and the 6.2-liter V-8 engine (which is recommended for a snow plowing business in Pennsylvania), you’ll get 15 city mpg and 20 highway mpg. This 420-horsepower engine will give you 460 lbs./ft of torque. Silverado 1500s may not have as much power as the F-250, but they are suitable used service trucks in Lancaster County for a snow plowing business.
The truck you use will have a direct impact on the speed and efficiency of snow plowing. If you’re interested in these two powerhouse trucks, or something else that may have caught your eye, Jackobson Motor Corp. has a fine selection that you should check out.
