you can do like I do, I pay the farmer/neighbor to come and plow the lane.
he charges me $150 a year and he is there at 6 each morning.
I can't buy a blade for that amount nor can I have a beater truck, fuel,
keep it serviced
I can stand at the window drinking my morning coffee and wave at him as he
passes by ...
if you have a good neighbor then life is grand.
