    Okay lets see if we can get this going, the idea behind this thread is to post lot sizes and truck info used to clear the lot and the times it takes. Or how much salt is used, posting a picture would be helpful for others.

    This is not intended to be a how much to charge because we all know that varies, but just a "x" minutes for and 8' blade on a "x" sqft lot.

    Thanks in advance, and lets make this a good one.

    About 220,000sq ft asphalt wide open but lots of sign post to plow around with a John deere 310 and a 14' push box = 1 1/2 hours
    salt we use about 4 tons

    Probably double the time with a real good amount of snow
