    I had to share this, today I was offered to do a major national retailers lot. Over an acre lot plus sidewalks, a loading dock, with salting $190 per push. gotta love these nationals trying to put us all out on the street. :dizzy:

    Well, lets break it down,lol......an average truck could have that plowed in about 15-20 minutes, 400-600lbs of salt applied (average price) would be around 80 bucks, the sidewalks would be the only hitch here. But by my calculations WE would only have about 100 bucks tops wrapped up in it. Again not knowing the sidewalks makes it tough. But doesn't sound too awful bad.

    Well you right, I "assuming" its a fairly wide open lot. If there were 10 islands in it that would change things a bit but still sounds decent to me.

    How's your 6.0L in your 1 ton? I was looking at a nice 08 1 ton that had the 6.0L in it. It had 70K miles but very clean and they were asking mid teens for it.

    Really you can plow a 1 acre lot in 15 to 20 minutes with a pick up truck? Open lot or not I find that hard to believe unless your going 90 both forward and reverse.

    im not going to say it is a great deal, but without knowing particulars, i would say that if it is a acre lot, wide open, and easily accesible, $190 is not a rude figure, My figures would be something in the $200-250 range

    The lot is well over an acre 60,000sqf plus. I guess we have it good here, I get more then that for salting lots less then half that size.
