    i know in my area going rate for snow removal is based upon $80-110 pr hr per truck. I am kinda in the dark about bagged and bulk salting pricing i should be charging to put it down and also the prices for doing sidewalks with snowblower. any help is appreciated

    up in this neck of the woods we usually charge 75 an hour per truck, 120 for backhoe and about 150 for loader... and 75 for us to drop salt.. thats all a per hour rate tho.. as we usually do alot of contract plows' so all the hourly rates are blown out the window... usually only get hourly for removals...

    Around here which isn't too far from you, your lucky to get 45/truck, 65/skid steer and 115 for a loader. Yes sad isn't it. Salt prices are all over the place. I guess you would need to know the price for both bulk and bagged. Bulk is going to be much cheaper to use but then you need everything to handle bulk with.
