    Link doesn't work and its almost impossible to accurately do this. Figure out your expected costs based on an average winter in your area, and add it all up. If you have no idea how to do this you shouldn't be bidding on something that big.

    It's not that I don't know how to figure out my cost's, it's more that I've never used a loader to plow. In the past I've done churches apartment complexes,ect. that I can say it will take a hour and a half with 1 or 2 pickups to clear the lot. I'm looking into large lots that would require a loader. I don't know what the going rate is or how long it would take to clear the lot with one. I'm just trying to get a base line figure of what a rough estimate would be. For some reason I can't get my pictures to load in this section.
