    link worked!... whats your average snowfall? is it zero tolerance? depending on where the snow is to be placed those are some long pushers... do your truck have a v blade or wide out? what the size of the lot? Id say your at least one loader short for equipment

    What's bad about this lot is you have entrances all over the place so it looks like you need to push most of it to the grassy area and that will add time to it. your playing with fire by including salting too. Will they let you keep salt on site? looks like at least 2-3 tons each time. Ice melt for the sidewalks (can;t tell) 10-20 bags each time.
