    I got a call to bid on the 2 biggest lots i have ever had the chance to bid. Now I know all my costs ext, im just looking to see how long everyone thinks it will take to plow and how much salt i will use. This lot has a zero tolerance, you can only use magic salt and ALL the snow has to be piled in the rear(the longest area of spaces). A machine also has to be kept here all season. Here is the site

    I came up with 13k for the season, 1.5-2 hours to do and 1.5-2 yds of salt. Its also 2.33 acres of paved area.

    Better bump up you time if you have to put it in only one spot.A lot of wasted time.How many 1-3 inch snows you get in a season and how many under an inch snows do you get?

    I would say we get 30-40 inches average. Last year we only plowed 4 times, year before that we plowed 15 with 80+ inches. Its not open 24 just has to be done by 6:45 AM. I wil be using a 9ft v-plow on a f-350 and a machine with 8 or 10 ft pusher.
