    You need to fuiger out what you need to get per hour to cover your costs and still make a profit. Also, fuiger out your local average per hour rates. I know, this is very hard since everyone is so tight lipped about their prices. But just do your best.

    If you have any experience plowing you should know about how long the lot will take you. Add it up. As to salting, be careful giving a set, contract price on that since salt prices have been know to change quite dramatically season to season, or even mid-season.

    Good luck!
