    Had three calls in the last hour.

    Help me with these, here's my first thoughts;

    Driveway one, 1200 feet, double width as it is actually a road. Nothing to open at the end. Simple.
    I was thinking 2 loaders with 16 foot pushers. $500 an hour each. 4 hr minimum. Or $2200 a push.

    Driveway two, 600 feet, same as the first one. Figured one loader and 16' pusher and half the other price.

    Third driveway, 100 feet, with a 100x200 opening at the end. This one I was thinking a 1973 IH scout with a 6.5' 1967 meyer blade. $13.50 per push.

    Thoughts?:help:

    It is faster with a bucket.

    I think your price on the first one is from another planet! LOL

    I'm assuming those prices are factoring in that they "just need to be punched out", or "just one quick pass", other wise it would be higher

    For last minute emergency calls - I stick it to them like no one else I've met.

    Can't quite tell if this post is a joke or not though.

    Sounds like the quotes I was giving for leaf cleanups last weekend.
