    Our trucks get 15.00 dollars an hour. I just do it to keep the guys busy. I have no insurance. It works out great though. Now everyone is happy, plus I have nothing better to do in the winter. You know getting out of bed at 12;00am for allmost free is great. :dizzy: Todd

    70.00-80.00 per hr for pick up mounted snowplow is a fair deal. You have enough to pay employee, fuel, insurance and still make a profit, although smaller profit margin but less headaches. You plow when you want too and get off when you want too. We plow about 20 places then sub out to larger operation. But after my accounts are done, I go home and employee's do the sub work.
