    hey guys, I can't wait for the first snow storm of the year. I have a couple questions. I sold my plow truck over the summer because I could not afford to keep putting repairs in it. I ended up keeping the 7 foot fisher plow that I had on it. I put a custom rubber deflector on it and replaced ever nut and bold on it. It even has a pretty good life in the cutting edge left. Whats a good price to sell it for. Blade only. No pump controls, lights or mounting brackets.
    second question: If I subcontract using someone else's truck and plow, whats a good hourly rate to receive if they provide the insurance for me?

    Can't help you with the Fisher blade $ question, as far as the subcontracting question I'm a little :confused: there - does this mean you are going to be an employee of the person who owns the truck?

    I generally interpret "subcontract" as meaning you're fully equipped with truck/plow/insurance etc of your own, but working for another contractor as opposed to chasing your own customers.

    Its probably 10 years old. It needs a paint job. One of my friends painted some teeth on it. I have it for sale on excite.com for like 300. I just want to get rid of it. I have a pic if anyone wants one, just e-mail me at jashem@aol.com

    sounds fair for not having any other equipment with it.

    As for $20/hr - depends an location. Around here, that would be unreal (high).

    I pay my drivers a little less then that. Although I include meals for them. I would think that may be a fair price depending on demand. It is hard to find drivers around here. I have a harder time finding shovelers and actually pay more for them then I do drivers.
