Hopefully someone with experience can give me an answer.

I am looking to start up a mini snow removal service. I am looking into a little bit of an older 4x4 but still runs strong. I am looking to possibly get some contracts from properties to sign me up for the winter to do their snow removal service.

That being said, do I require a license by law to operate a snow plow or no, can I just buy a truck get a snow plow and start plowing, once of course i register my business and all tha fun stuff? If so where can I take course so i can be certified if need be?

Second, does any one know or can recommend any place they know of that sells plows for cheap and installs them on vehicle. Or any site that sells used plows for cheap. I am just looking to make some extra bucks in the winter, thats all.

Thanks for reading and I hope your answers can provide some feedback
