    Not to steal your thread, but what better place to say that I have 2 tri axle dump trucks ready to haul snow. probably could get a Kubota with a blower to come along also.

    yeah hind sight, actually just got a call on per hour work see if the contract comes back signed if so we're on our way, calling for 2 more feet in some parts. Surely nothing going on here might as well go make some money.

    minimal for lodging because i have family up that way, i included what i thought i would spend in fuel (per two days Non stop) and included that in my hourly, that way my travel is covered considering ill be pulling three lowboys hauling equipment. I also called NYDOT but they laughed at me so........

    i think id probly be around 150/hr. per bobcat and somewhere between 100-175 per truck. but id have them sign something to get paid for a min amount of hours to make the trip worth it.

    right, i wont even pull out of my lot until i have a contract in hand, i also put in the contract a mandatory minimum of 12h per piece of equipment so i dont drive all the way up there for a small lot that takes me a few hours. NYDOT told me unless i have triaxle dumps or a snow dragon they arent worried about machines yet.

    i looked at a snow dragon once, i figure id have to get 750-900 per hour for the melter and loader combo, to cover fuel labor ins. etc.

    They have quick release funnels on the bottom but tend to wear out after a season or two.
