Meet BOSS Owner Shawn O’Keefe

Posted by Taylor Peiffer on May 19, 2015 7:50:00 AM

 

Shawn O’Keefe, a snow removal contractor with Midwest Landscape Specialists, Inc., has been servicing commercial parking lots for eight years. With many seasons of plowing in Northwest Indiana, Shawn typically pushes approximately 40 inches of snow per winter. It’s easy to see that he has a lot of experience with snow management, especially because he has plowed with a BOSS for five of those seasons. When we asked what he loved about BOSS so much the answer was easy, and he replied, “Reliability and strength; ease of use.” He explained that his initial attraction to BOSS was how well built the plow is. He elaborates, “BOSS is indestructible; it can’t be broken.”

“Good product. Good people. And hardwork.”

Posted by Katie Roell on Oct 7, 2014 11:13:52 AM

Mid- Michigan Snow Equipment is one of the oldest BOSS Distributors and recently celebrated their 30 year anniversary as a successful business.  Byron and his brother Ted Russell began their business as lawn and snow contractors that later became a snow removal distributing business following a snowmobiling trip.  While Ted Russell was on the trip, he met a BOSS Sales Representative.  He quickly became intrigued by the BOSS Multi-position Plow concept and shared the enthusiasm with his brother.  Before long, they ordered their first order of six BOSS Snowplows in late March.  As snow contractors at the time, they purchased two plows for themselves and tried them out on their own trucks.  Impressed by the design and quality of the plows, they soon became a BOSS Distributor.

"Like a BOSS"-Eric Bruce

Posted by Katie Roell on Jun 26, 2014 5:30:00 PM

 

Eric Bruce, a proud BOSS owner for over 15 years lives in Wawa, Ontario Canada, located on the northeast corner of Lake Superior.  Eric first purchased a plow to take care of the parking lot of the motel he owned and looked for a couple of additional plowing contracts to justify the purchase of a new plow and truck.  Quickly, other people saw Eric plowing and his few parking lots grew to 5 or 6 parking lots and anywhere from 30-40 driveways resulting in Eric Bruce Enterprises. 

Bruce has been a loyal BOSS owner since the beginning of his days snowplowing.  The first plow he ever owned was bought in 1999 and was sold in 2005.  Bruce explains that his very first plow is still being used by its new owner.  Today, Bruce plows with his Ford F 250 with a BOSS V plow on the front.  It is his third BOSS plow and he doesn’t plan on switching.  BOSS has been always been there to back him up. His favorite feature is the plow’s ability to stack snow during the severe winters that blow through Ontario, Canada.  On average, Bruce plows 30-35 snow events each winter 150 inches of snow falls cumulatively.  Bruce recalls his toughest snowplowing job about five years ago when 27 inches of snow fell in just twelve hours!
