    I wouldn't try that lot without at least 2 loaders. Your in the snow belt. You'd be lucky keep up with a lake effect snow with 1 loader and 3 or 4 trucks.

    to me, it'd be worth $300 per occurance just to have to fug around all those trailers sitting in the lot.

    125k with salt seasonal and I would put a 300 ton salt bin on site.

    Peter,
    the 300 was to be added to your per push amout because the trailers were going 2 b a pita. what did your friend decide in terms of equipment for this site? please tell me at least a few loaders with pushers.......

    that lot has 0 pickups written all over it.

    that looks like loaders and dump trucks to me

    if thats where i think it is, they are going with there contractor from last year. FYI Most places that size will REQUIRE a loader be left on site.

    27 or so acres minus the buildings which look to be about 4 acres. So 23 acres of plowing could probably be done with three to four loaders with 16 foot push blades and two or three trucks to get into the tight areas
