    This winter I will be getting a snow plow for my ATV and want to plow driveways/sidewalks in my neighborhood for $$$

    My neighborhood is an upscale developement (avg. lot size ~ 3/4 acre) with driveways Im guessing no more than 50ft long at most, some shorter and usually 2 cars wide...

    SO the question is... WHAT IS A GOOD PRICE TO CHARGE??? $20, $30? need opinions

    Maybe I'm naive but how much snow can you plow with an ATV?? I can't see "upscale" customers paying someone to plow their driveway with one.

    When I got mine for my quad I was surprised at how much it can handle. I have a 60" plow with a wing on my '00 Grizzly.
