    Any idea how long this would take with a 8.6" v-plow and 2 guys shoveling? for 6" snow.

    Ahhh Mohawk Trail Route 2, If I'm not mistaken.
    I would charge a little extra, I think that appears to be not paved.
    What's with the shoveling? If I had to plow that for 6"; I'd charge 2 hours min whatever your hourly rate needs to be as the cheapy owner not wanting you for any other lower increments; plus the fact of hammering your awesome plow on that nasty ground if it hasn't been paved yet. JMO

    Plus think of how far you have to push the snow between the buildings. Whatever you have for a figure in your head go higher!!:gunsfiring:

    I agree Grampa. I heard somewhere it had to do with population density, but I am not sure. I just know they don't come up like that for me either.

    wow, very good Eye on the gravel. There are some loose stones that worry me for the snowblower. So min 2 hours per person you think? anybody else have a timeline?

    My thought with just the plow 2 hours min., as to the shovelers; i hope you aren't clearing the snow from the storage doors; it might be well suited to angle away well as keeping 24"inches away from doors; there not the strongest. If its pertinent the doors need clearing, I would guesstimate those guys being there with shovels for 3 hours onsite. a few of the storage laces we handle dont require doors to be cleared.

    And don't forget that once those guys finally finish shoveling out the doors you will have to go back and clean that all up out of there too.
