    I have a '91 F800 with a 10' Valk plow and a Henderson Chief hydraulic drive salter. Had bought it cheap and intended to resell it, but may end up keeping it around. If I were to sub for someone, what kind of hourly rate should I expect?

    Thanks, Phillip

    I would pay 85 an hour for plowing, and 70 an hour for salting with that equipment.

    Would that salting rate be using your salt or mine? What situations where plowing and salting would be done in the same pass?

    Thanks,
    Phillip

    About the only people I know that plow and salt on the same pass, would be DOT, City, or County plows. Most of the time in lots, you plow it off then swing back through the lot, and salt it. Otherwise you take a chance of pushing your salt right off the lot into a big pile of snow. 70 an hour for salting would be using my salt.

    We do get snow through the winter, but not as much as I would like. ;) Usually not too heavy...usually only a couple snows around a foot deep each winter. The good side is, when snow comes in, people tend to flip out and want everything plowed and salted until the pavement is bare.

    I understand that wouldn't fly in lots, but there are occasionally neighborhoods who need their streets done. In that case, a guy could save fuel plowing and salting in the one pass.
