    I went and looked at a job today and i estimated it to be about 38,000 square feet. The guy wants me to give him a estimated hours on how long it would take me to plow with about 3". I'm rather new at this and don't want to under bid. Also there really aren't any obstacles, so pretty much just straight pushes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can search for more detailed answers to your question, but figure about an hour with an 8' straight blade, straight pushes, no obstructions. In other words, about an acre an hour.
