    Got a call from a lady today who wanted me to give and estimate for her vacation home i usualy just plow intown small driveways and just wanted to make sure on this job. It was two dark to take pictures but i will drive it as best as i can. The driveway begins with about a 400-500 long one lane driveway/road with plenty of room to pull the snow across to one side. at the end of the road i can push straight forward the there is a longer two car driveway perpendicular to the road that i will have to back blade about half of it the push it all off to the side. I am going to be using a 3/4 ton ford witha boss 9.2 v blade i feel it should be pretty quick but am not sure.
    thanks for they help guys

    How close is this to your other jobs? If its with in 10 mins of your other jobs I would be around $70, and over 10 inches would be 90 or more
