    Sounds like the price of a driveway to me.

    Isn't it a price per pass to come up with that price?

    Yes i have an hourly rate.. It's a small lot so i'm figuring seven stright pushes to clear lot so i'm not their lot long.. I did a search, because i thought i remeber reading last year some talk about a per pass amount to come up with total for plowing the lot.

    Personally I wouldn't waste my time with a per pass amount. You are better off with a time frame and 7 pushes could be a 3K lot or an acre and a half runway. I figured you meant it was smaller though which is why I said a minimum. Even if it only takes 30 seconds to plow it takes you time to drive there and prep time.

    Seven passes would hit the 1 Hour minimum for me.

    No less.
