    We took out 46 tri-axles of snow this weekend for a commercial account we plow. What are you guys getting for actual removal? We used a bcakhoe and 1 tri-axle.

    For one of my accounts, we also have to haul snow. Just giving you an idea we charge $100.00 an hour for the loader, and $80.00 an hour for the dump truck. I don't know if that is an average price or not, but we make money on it, and the customer doesn't't seem to be un-happy with it. This is our third year servicing this account so it seems to work.

    We get $100 an hour for the loader and $100 for the dump. We don't receive any dump fees though. I don't know if that is normal, but so far we have not had to move anything, so it isn't really an issue.

    Do you get dump fees? We have a property that we can dump on for free, so it didn't really matter to us.

    There were no "dump fees" but we had to clear a spot to put it which took us about 3 hours.
