    Actually I am subbing Myself right now! But I have some Mega large contracts asking me to take back from years past! I want to make sure I will have back up if I take them on! To be honest I want to pay at least $50 an hr if I can! I am real tired of working for $35 myself which I guess isn't too bad but the boss I have now pays NO travel time, wants you to clock out for like 1 1/2 hrs to go home and catch a nap, and If I do a lot that takes his guys 2 hrs in 45 mins he wants to pay 45 mins not an hr but 45mins! Come on does that sound outa line and being mistreated to anyone else? I am not going after any of his contracts! Although I should seeing how I saved him half his payroll teaching his guys to plow the right way! HAHAHA

    Nate If I can do it for ya I will! I used to work at a rather Large Mall towards Elryia I could ask If they need another truck however they only pay $30 an hour but you usually get 6 to 10 hrs and never leave the lot!

    wow pricing went in the shitcan, the last time we went out it was as a group of 4 trucks and we each made $120 an hour on a 8-14" event.

    unfortunantly $300 wouldnt even cover all of my gas(6-7 mpg)

    For $120 and hour subbing, I guess you would drive 2 hours for 10 hrs of work, heck, I'd drive to tudledo or Cleveland for that kind on money to sub myself, sign me up.

    Right me too Hell I'd be real happy with the 50 to 75! I've heard about for like 10 yrs but Not one time have I ever been offered that to sub! Most I ever made was 35! I say this year all us Subs get together, actually get paid for once, back each other up and get together and set a standard of pricing!

    That might get us a better pay rate. The contractors have to be hurting for subs. I called 3 different ones (Akron) this fall to see what their rates for subs are. They took my phone number and said they pay $35 --> $41 an hour. the fist snow hits and I had 5 companies call me to plow. I went with the $41 an hour. I think $50 is a fair rate, we have costs too and not everyone can plow snow.
