    rmartin,

    Welcome to Plowsite:waving:
    I would suggest that you go down to the network forum and look through a few pages. There are a few companies on there looking for subs in Massachusetts and if you are in one of there areas you could probably get hooked up with one of them as a sub, unless you already have an in somewere.

    we have a few stores in the auburn and worcester area. we pay $65 per hour for a one ton with a 9 foot blade.. and start plowing at 2 inches but often scrape on lower amounts. Pay is within 30 days however

    New plower in MA, rates question????

    Im new in the plowing game and would like to know what fair paying rates are for front end loader operators and 1/2 ton truck drivers. I recently started plowing for a company, im an equipment operator by trade, and im using the company's equipment. I sometimes operate a front end loader and sometimes drive a 1/2 ton truck and would like to know what rates are like for a starting person. i have over 10 yrs experience operating havy equipment, and driving for well over 20.

    Thanks in advance,
    Semper Fi!
