    I have worked locally and plowed for City during Major Blizzard a few years back
    I am now sub contractor for local company that has large business parks, distribution centers, etc.
    I only have a skid steer and the company pays $80/hr
    I also have a plow with wings for the skid steer but not sure they are paying more for this set up as I mentioned this and they said they had a "rate for skid steers"

    Is it worth more per hour as it is much more productive than a standard bucket on a skid steer ?
    Do Contractors usually pay more for this set up?

    They may or may not. Most times they'll tell you exactly what they'll pay, and what they require for equipment. You could hold out for more, but that probably wouldn't work out well for you. If you're okay with the 80.00 per hour, just use the bucket if they don't want to pay you for the plow.

    Your a contractor too, waite maybe not.
    You pay employees by the hr...

    Not that being a employee is a bad thing.
    If they are treatng you as a employee but paying you like a contractor they are stealing from you, ie no SS or workmansp comp, nemloyment being pay
    On your behalf.

    Your pay Rate is up to you, everything is negoshatabel.
    Does your company make money, sending out a skidsteer with operator at $80 an hr?
