    Are you planning to plow for someone or are you trying to price a contract?

    If you want to give me a little more information I will do my best to help you. It would most likely be an all inclusive price(plowing and salting and sidewalks).

    I am going to say that $100/month for residential, this includes the front walk would be close. That is a normal 20'x50' driveway.

    For commercial, $125/hour times 20 nights out. Salting if you are using bulk through a V box salter would go for $150/ton with a $80 minimun. You will salt around 40 times if you are looking to get it to bare pavement all the time.

    Sidewalks are going to depend on how much you need or how much you are paying the helped. Are you allowed to put salt on the sidewalks or do you need a special ice melt to protect the concrete?
