    I don't personally but my buddy does both of them here in town. I can consult with him and see what he says.

    My buddies do Lowe's too. I was gonna try to get it for next year, but they may keep it? I'm hoping they want to dump it.

    I sub for a guy who had both here in Springfield. They were billed per push with a 2" trigger. Hope that helps a little.

    I believe they also charge per push with a 2" trigger.

    We plow three Lowe's stores. Two on a seasonal contract and one per push. They are great customers but pretty demanding. Ours have a 1" trigger for plowing and want multiple salts under one inch. They will call at all times of the day and night for service and want it immediately. They pay very well for this service. We mow and sweep six of their stores, but being as they are demanding, we didn't feel we could plow them all efficiently. Let me know if you need more information, as long as you are not going after my stores, I am happy to help!

    I used to work at Lowes. They were pretty demanding. I think our trigger was 1". They would call for salt at all times too. The thing that hurt our plower was that we had a fence around the lumber yard so they had to wait until 6am til a manager was there to unlock it for them.The contractor charged per hour I believe. He made a ton of money from our store. As far a paying, they were pretty quick. They paid at store level with the store credit card.
