    Ok, we are trying to figure out how much to charge for larger lots... I have images of our church, we want to know how much you would charge per push (if it wasnt a church)...
    Also how much for salt would it take? and how much for to charge for salt?

    Ok, their is about 50,000 sq ft, and a few light poles...

    We are probably gonna charge in by depth...

    1-4'- ?????
    4-6'- ?????
    6-8- ????? or 6 and over go hourly? need input....

    Thanks,
    Russell

    $170 to plow it and to salt it another $170.00. now walks and everything else is another price. it is a church and I feel it is an easy lot to push.

    Well if you have the time for just one truck,$175 to plow each time, Salt varies depending on how much you will pay for a ton
