    I'm looking at a bid for a large lot approx 550,000 per push rate for 1-2 inch thinking 1100 and approx 975 per salt application. What do you guys think.

    Thanks

    seems a tad on the low side for prices I have heard and seen in the Chicago market. But I guess it depends on how bad you want the job. You should have some serious equipment for 12.5 acres and you have to cover yours costs.

    1,500 push, 1,100 salt. Depends how much you want it.

    A 2" push should be pretty fast. How will the trucks handle an 8" snowfall? The place will take close to 5 tons of salt depending on conditions. I think I would rather have 2 pushers and 1 truck but you have the equipment you have. Can you buy salt for a fixed price all year?
