    I haven't had the chance to go through my list and make an exact count since I posted the question, but we do along the lines of ~50 Commercial lots, and ~20 driveways, plus ~35 commercial sidewalks.

    We service 32 resedential driveways with walks, we service 2 private roads, 1 large apartment complex, 2 small apartment complex, and 5 comercial lots, so 42 locations all together, we are about maxed out at this amount.

    I do a small town, school, and townhome association Just got done doing a 5-6 inch snow and it took 25 hours to get everything completely done, not including salt or liquid applications on the 25 hours.

    Actually I have great customers,I do it all myself! :eek: I never tried to figure how many properties I could handle,I just add up the time and divide by trucks/ shovelers.Sometimes 3,usually 4-5 trucks, 4 shovelers.27 commercial accounts.Longest 3 hours,shortest 15 mins, my favorites don't include any sidewalk clearing.My goal is to gradually replace existing accounts with non sidewalk jobs.
