    Your poll wasn't there when I posted.

    Is that it?

    No info on how long they are ~ whether or not they are straight, circle, ell shaped, long, short, gravel, pavers, etc. etc.?

    What's at the top of the drive? Are their two cars keeping me from pushing straight up and through or is there a garage at the end? Or is the garage or parking area off to one side so I can push straight in without any back dragging?

    Ahhhhh......now that a garage is there it makes alot of difference in a "straight" push.

    i realize people are kind of busting Scotts chops about this point with questions about the scenario, but i would hope that we could all formulate in our minds what a average residence is like to plow, and i would bet that if everyone sat down and compared notes they would all be basically the same

    No not really.....for one, he has not given the sutable options for some of us here (mark oomkes) to choose from.......
    40oz------
    6 pack------
    12 pack-------
    18 pack-------
    Case-------

    Generally I would say 6 pack......but if its a real bumpy driveway, and I spill beer when I'm plowing (we all know spilled beer = more overhead ;)), then its probably a 12 packer....but it better be cold and waiting for me outside when I show up.

    20x50 driveway, garage at the top, don't get out of the truck, $400/year approx 20 plows and then return trip if the street hasn't been plowed.

    I don't do driveways but that's what they get here.

    Extra $100 to do in front of garage doors and walkway to front door with shovel.
