    I would bid around $289,000. for the season. Salt is above and beyond though. I'd say about 19 tons for that lot, putting each application of salt (for me) around $3,325.

    An 8 foot plow is more than enough for that lot too.

    Good luck.

    You're not going to have much fun in that lot with your current plow.

    Ace and Jblatti, one thing you'll learn about this site is that it's full of smart butts! But once your here for awhile you'll find out that there is a wealth of information and experience. Check out the threads on bidding, you'll see what I mean.

    Merri, I think you were about 1 K high!!

    You're in Missouri, he's in Michigan. The problem is not some much the size of the plow, it's just that it's a truck plow period. If the snow has to moved to one end only, windrowing 8 inches of concrete 400 feet with any blade on a pickup is not going to be fun.
