    It all depends on your market. I wish I had someone to plow sites that size for me so cheap! And that would be cheap for a 1 - 4" snowfall in my market!

    The last time I plowed a lot that size, was over 20 years ago and I used a 6.5 Western on a 75 Bronco. It seemed to take forever. How long does it take with a 8' plow now? I only do residential push offs now.

    Ditto Chuck. If that guy wants to travel over here I'll put him to work ASAP. Here's another example of how every market is different though.
