    Hey I just got on MD snowremoval.com, and they took away the calculator. So I wandered if anyone could tell me how long it would take to plow a 5.5 acre lot. Lot is wide open, only a few cars in their lot before 7am, so no obsticles. Pleanty of places to put the snow also. I will be using a 9'2" Boss V plow.

    Thanks in advance Bossman

    I don't have your answer but what kind of calculator are you referring to?

    There was a calculator on the internet, and if you entered total square feet it would calculate how long it would take to plow with somany inches of snow. Also it would tell you how much salt to apply. It's not necessary on smaller jobs, but on larger jobs it is very helpful.

    I emailed with them back when it was still up and they were going to release a full version of it sometime. The guy said "in time for this season" Said it would be around $25.

    That calculator is not all that its cracked up to be at best it will give you a starting point or a baseline. I will say this it is way light on the amount of salt needed for a lot. Thats my opinion but what do I know
