    My question is how much per push? 2-4? 5-7? Also how much to salt lot only? No steps their employees will do steps and walk way. Pretty new to plowing so this one has mu thinking? Also how much salt will this use?

    I'd say 1800 to 2400 lbs of salt depending on temp. and amount of traffic. Lower side if your salting after plowing, higher side if your treating an ice event. For plowing, I'd be $560 per push @ 2" trigger

    Whats the average snowfall per year, and how many events? In a big storm, your truck ain't gonna make it. That's a big lot.
