    I would never tell anyone what to charge, but the value of your service is worth much more than $85. The risk isn't worth the reward in my opinion.

    I shoot for $100 an hour for plowing so I'd go for $125. Like everyone else said, your price may vary. I do have a little bigger plow than you so maybe I can charge a bit more per hour?
