    I am new to snow removal and I am needing to know how much to charge for snow removal with a snow blower or a snow blade?

    IMO, blower & man to run it = $30/ hour from the time the man gets out of the truck to the time the guy gets back in the truck to leave.

    Truck and driver, 8' straight, I want $100/hour average for 8 hours of it. Now, if I were hiring in a sub, then I would pay 70% of what it earned to the owner/driver. That seems high from what I have read in here, but I am saying this for MY area. And if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys for workers.
