    I need to plow the roads and driveways within the red shaded area. How long should it take to complete this for an average snowfall (4" or less)? how long for a large snowfall? I am running a 2014 F250 with a Boss Power Vxt 8'2"

    45 min max with a back plow.

    Holy schnikes people, what cleanup and detail work?

    Pull the drives, 3 passes on the horseshoe on the outside and maybe 3 passes on the dead end.

    I don't have a back plow, and I don't think most of the people on here do.

    I still don't see much cleanup or detail wrk.

    And now you understand why back plows are worth it.

    1-2" I could probably be done in a half hour.

    Guess you're just faster than I am. Either way, I would always bid on the skeptical side just to cover my ass.

    5 minutes per driveway. Another 20 minutes for the street.

    Reason Mark O gets done so fast is he dosen't look in windows anymore.
