    You need to re evaluate your equipment list.

    You're not ready for an account of this size.

    OK Bud...We will be serious for a moment...It's 10 acres give or take...I assume what you mean by "buckets" you mean pushers...Have you ever run a skid in wet snow witha 12 foot "Bucket"??? How long do you think it will take to get said 10 acres done with said equipment??..Any walks or Salting on this 10 acres???

    Well if you already have one half that size then double the price and there you go. Guess you don't need the help.

    Not sure how you did 6 acres with 2 truck in 2 hours but hey what do I know. Maybe it's just for a 1/2" of snow?

    In all seriousness though $35,000 for the season sounds about right :terribletowel:

    I would say bump it a bit 45ish, but obviously trigger/tolerances would factor in....

    Did you ever stop to think that is why they are no longer doing it?
