    I am looking at bidding a government job and need some help. Looking at 275,000 sqft of parking lot. 200000 of it is occupied from 7-5 the other is military vehicle parking occupied 24/7. Looking for your ideas. Have to bid 1-6 and 6-12 inches. 1-6 inches is considered 1 push, above 6 inches is considered 2 pushes. Will have to salt/sand lots as needed as well, was thinking 500#/acre. Thanks in advance.

    Looks good! That's about where I'm at but how did you figure the 6-12 inch price? Also is 500# about right per acre?

    I'm generally a little higher than 500#. But it depends on the property. I'm usually between 600-1000# / acre. Generally closer to 600, unless it's real cold out.
