    Id say camden's estimate for plowing is damn good, then throw in shoveling, which it doesn't look like much, and salt would depend on what you're paying, but its only an acre.

    "Hey", I don't know. As much as the market bears in your neighborhood. And I'd also learn how to ask a question politely especially if it was my first post. I salt at roughly 800 lbs per acre. I don't know what you pay for salt, or what you want to charge per hour for labor, but you can do the math (hopefully). I would charge one hour to plow, and 20 minutes to salt.

    Subscribed. Lol.

    I'd go about 165/plow, 150/salt $9500/season.

    Here's your issue, you asked what new people ask every year. In fact this is like the fifth "Howies should I charge" this week.

    You should do the homework and figure it out,
    How much do you need to cover expenses.

    Skid/ equipment/ truck
    Insurance
    Employees
    Taxes
    Fuel
    Material
    Overhead
    After you figure that out, you need to figure what you want to make.
    Obv. If your sidewalk laborer is making 20$ an hour, you'll want to figure that you make more than him.

    This is silly talk. Just give him a price already.

    I need to move or expand the monarchy. It's a bit bigger than I thought--seeing it on the 'puter now--but there is no way any of those prices would fly around me.

    If it were here on my route, $150 a push. Walks, and there seems to be a good bit, $50 an hour plus materials. I don't buy new trucks and equipment to lowball.
