    I was wondering how to price a seasonal in a place it doesnt snow much.I have done very well with small lots, and last year with the big lots.I tpically price out lots for x amount of pushs and if i fall short (which most times i dont) i make it up on there lawn care.The past few years i have been growing alot and picking up bigger places, my fear is that i want to make sure i can handle it.The area im in last year we only plowed once, but salted about 10-15 times.I am looking at some of your prices on hear and they are ALOT higher than mine ,but you get ALOT more snow. I currently have two 3/4 ton trucks, a skid, and a compact tractor. I take care of about 20 places when we get 4-5plus (but reliable isnt a big deal with them) I also do a kohls that is about 4 acres and a lot next to it that is about 5 and a couple others that are 0 tolarance. I can do all my salting in about 2-3 hr with me in 1 truck. My problem is i dont have the experance with the pushing on these big lots. If you had my equpiment and lived in a place where in most likely wouldnt dump on you would you take on more. And what do u feel is a good price for a 4-5 acre lot on a seasonal in a area like this
