    i have been serching on the form and i see alot of new people asking about how much they should be making an hour and such. well this past storm i made about 900 with my own truck and plow. im 17 now and kinda new to this plowing scene but have the contracts or my own and i sub for this landscaping company. but i halso have my number out there all over the place through a bunch of buddies. as a 17 year old making 900 i thinks its fair but i know i could do a little better but i started kinda late and took what i could get. dont be afraid to do some bashing but put your input in and lets hear what some of you made when you started out.

    With you being 17 how is it working as a sub? Is the truck in your name? Any insurance for your business? How much you burn in gas to make your 900? No bashing just asking questions.:waving:

    $30 in 24 hours of plowing?

    I'm sorry, that just doesn't seem right. For referance, I burn about $40 (24 gal) in just about 12-14 hours.
