    No

    16 acres of pavement is approximately 16 hours of one 8' truck working (realizing you would never do this size lot, but it's a good way to get to a price)

    that's $50/hour

    I don't think so.

    Depends on what your salting rate is? is $.09/lb good enough? if so then yep, its fair.

    next time be more informative. We all thought you were plowing the lot as well.

    well, you know, in my post it clearly says for 1 truck, and nobody would do a 16 acre lot with 1 pickup, that was my point, i'm just using it for estimating not for actually doing it. I never made one point about if you can do the lot or not.

    nor did you say salt only

    but clearly, you know all, since you are here asking for help.

    nice attitude.

    i got 1650 for salting,

    almost 8 tons at 210 per ton installed

    i would start your base price at 4300 for 0-3" and go up from there (as far as plowing)
