    Just wondering what some of the plow companys are paying subs to plow this year in the suburbs of the cleveland ohio area or for that matter what are you guys getting paid an hour to plow using your own truck ? Whats a good rate to expect for a well experianced plow driver in his own truck ?

    Does blade size play a role on pay or is it more of an experiance thing ? I hear some guys pay more for larger plows 7 1/2' vs 8' vs 8 1/2' . Anyone plow in the lorain county area willing to comment on what they get paid or pay out per hour.

    I live in cleveland, and get $45 hour with my 1500 z71, 7.6 meyers straight blade. This is my first year plowing, so its kinda paid training to me! My boss is a old friend of mine that has ALOT of work. He has 6 other subs that get $55-65 hr with there trucks.Thats what I'll get next season. After this 15" we just had here, Im not a ROOKIE no more. Plowed for 19hrs during that onepayup

    Yeah I was going to say that to but maybe the v-box plays a factor. I never bothered with setting up to salt because when I inquired I heard no offer of extra money!

    Why would there be? I wouldn't give you a nickle more per hour with a salter. :p

    The benefit of having the salter is in the increased opportunity for you to work more often.

    Pushes = 15+\-
    Salt runs = 65 to 75+\-

    Not too hard to understand.
