    we currently plow a small residential street that is 6/10 of a mile long.

    the HOA rep wants a quote to salt.

    how do you guys bid for salting?

    Thanks!

    How wide would you figure it is. Give me some numbers and I can run them thru a calculator to tell you what you would use for salt.
    1 mile at 30 ft wide I would use about a ton according to my notes.. that might let you fig it out.

    Some places it is just easier for me to say its the same price to salt as it is to plow. Eg $90 to plow/$90 to salt (salt and applied one price)
