    Nice easy push. 1 1/2 - 2 hours max.
    Figure your costs add your profit margin. X that by how many storms you expect for the year.
    Being a commercial lot like that not sure why you are not adding salt but that's the way it goes I guess.

    Make sure you get a liability waiver. One truck driver stepping out onto an ice patch and he will think twice about why he didn't want salt.

    Will you have to carry snow from one end to the other to pile it? It looks like you will be carrying quite a bit rather than just pushing it in short turns.
    I'd say $80 per hour or $3700 a season..depending on the trigger and the average snowfall..

    I can't see that taking even close to an hour but maybe the picture is deceiving. How many sq/ft is it?

    I'm with you JD, If that takes 1.5 to 2 hrs you don't know what the hell you're doing.

    I figured 30-35 minutes..as long as the snow can be piled close and doesn't need to be carried 170'. If it does, 50-60 minutes.
