    What would you bid this at for seasonal pricing? We have two payloaders with pushers, a skid loader and two pick-up plows. Salting to be included in price. Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you have way too much equipment for a 6 acre lot.

    I would agree on the amount of equipment. We plow 6-7 acre lots with 1 loader 14 pusher, 1-2 trucks. How much snow do you get per season? I would be around 40-50k for the year plowing and salting only, no sidewalks. We get about 60 inches per year.

    I agree, 1 loader and either p/u or skid and have it done before breakfast.

    1st, he never said he would use all that, just what he has available. If didn't, the 2nd post would have been.....what kind of EQM you have

    2nd, no one answered his question

    3rd, Walmart will give the answer you seek.

    I stated what we had for equipment, because I figured some yahoo would ask if I was using a shovel or an 18" walk behind snowblower to do the entire 6 acre lot.

    That lot all inclusive will go for 20k or less......This Yahoo can read and I'm sure the guy that holds the contract that got it from another guy that really holds the contract will have someone doing it for Aboot 15k a year.....That's until the poor fool that's doing the work realizes that he is not getting paid or not making any money and quits......Then there will be a post on here about how they are getting Screwed.....:drinkup:
