    I have a 2000 F350 with an 8' Western plow, and a hitch salt spreader. I would like to take contracts however, I am unavalable 2 days a week because of my career job. My question is that I will be helping other companies when they are busy. How much should I charge per hour if I supply my own fuel and salt? I was thinking around $70 per hour. I'm located in southwestern Ontario.

    using your own salt and you want 70. you should get at least 70 for your usiing your truck and your own gas. if y ou use your own salt it shoud go up alot.
