    That depends how many feet the walks are My rate works for my area wont work in your area

    You need to figure what you want to make per hour That covers you over head

    I average around $85 per hour More if Im salting walks

    I know the prices are different in each area, i was just trying to get an idea.
    I have a sub who will be doing side walks for me and i wanted to pay him a fair rate. He will be using his own ATV and asked for 45 an hour, I just wanted to make sure that was a fair rate, and then I would adjust to bill the client.

    That's fair if you pay him 45 you need make double that That depends how good he is how much he can get down in the hour

    Some of the walks won't even take an hour about 30-45 minutes, there hotel sidewalks, and on an ATV it shouldn't be a problem
