    i say 1.5 hours with an 8ft plow with wings. 2 medium sized parking lots, the drive along the left side, and the small lot in the bottom of the pic. Got a guy saying it could be plowed in less than an hour.

    Is that a business or an apartment complex?

    Plan on all the parking spaces filled at night and nowhere to push the snow when figuring out your time.

    1 pick-up truck will not plow that in less than an hour even if there's only 2" on the ground. There's just too much area to cover to get it done that quickly.

    I'm saying at least 2hrs. By the time you back drag all the little spots and move it around.....God help you if you only have a straight blade!

    Clear drives first. Clear parking stalls after pennants go to work. How I've always done it.

    I should clarify, doing drives, and any wide open parking areas
