How Wide is a double wide Driveway

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by firstclasslawn, Sep 21, 2006.

  1. All the double wide driveways that I plow are 16ft. But I was just informed that many of the new ones are 18ft... Anybody heard this. I am very seriously considering a 16ft backblade and If all new driveways are 18ft then forget it!

    Most driveways double wide driveways are about 16 to 20 ft wide depending. Most double garage door openings are 16 and 18 ft wide. I use to install garage doors and the driveway in most cases are wider then the opening.

    go plow the 16ft rear plow folds to 8 ft for storage. basically its a 8ft pull plow with 2 4ft sections on the sides. they are not cheap at all, jon geer sells them.

    Make multiple passes, charge them more.
    More area to clear more cost to them.
