    Having been out of plowing for a few years, I'm trying to get an idea of the average hourly sub rate in Northern Ohio. I've heard everything from $35 to $65 per hour! A $30 spread seems awefully big.

    What's the most any of you (in the area) have made or paid per hour?

  2. It seems that $40.00 is about the average in the cleveland area, i've spoke to some subs that are making 35.00 and others that are making 40.00.
    One company will pay an experienced driver 40.00 for a 3/4 ton and an extra 5.00 an hour if you have a speader.
    I personally have not heard of more than 40.00 an hour for a 3/4 ton.

    I used to average 50 bucks an hour plowing just for myself. I wouldn't want to beat my truck for less. If I did, I'd probably try to not be hard on the equipment. And dang, the gas prices would kill ya these days.
