    Asphalter,
    Those are my piles of snow in that picture.

    You are right, it took some time. The snow sat a few days and Iced up under the snow. Took at least two hours if you count just a little drive time.

    It's funny to see the low ballers on the poll, anything below Nates 165 I guarantee will be out of business soon.

    Nate has pretty low overhead, he may be ok.... If he slows the beast down. :waving:

    But I tell you this, In a three day snow storm, you would have to almost live in that lot if you plowed every two inches.

    Might squeeze a couple more if they are close.

    Poor truck....

    :rolleyes:

    no doubt at least 250 per plowing. JUST plowing. Time is money and it costs to keep the rigs running let alone gas and supplies and stuff. Sorry Nate but in my neck of the woods you'd be a low baller.

    I'll be the first to admit I bid it for a $100 the first time I seen it but after reading the other post just now and seeing the higher bids I had to take a second look and now I see why missed the other half of the 2nd pic:eek: could of been a real loss if it would of been one of mine now that I looked at the whole lot it would be between 175.00 -- 190.00.

    different reigons bear different prices, I am seeing what others would charge. the added plus is that I picked up mowing & landscaping from the snow removal which is worth far more then $50 here $50 there, they just accepted a $3k proposal for landscaping which will cost me a whopping $536 in materials and 8 hours of work, so $2k in profit......new 52" mower:D :D

    ~Nate~

    BTW, I too would like to find out who bid <$100:rolleyes:

    Maybe if you did not try to bid them so low you could afford to buy some markers to prevent yourself from hitting another island. Just a thought.

    Nate,
    You need another pole on "overworked snow plowers"

    Maybe we can run statistics on arguments VS Snowfall accumulation..

    LOL
