    Does anyone know what towns pay the most for town plowing. I know Natick, Mass pays 58 an hour, minimum of four hours and 1 hour hookup.(for pickup trucks) I could call all the surrounding towns DPW, put ill try here first.

    Not sure about towns i am checking into that myself around Shelton CT here, but I think the state of ct pays $100 or so an hour min 4 hours, But you can only use a 33k truck with a min 11 or 12 ft plow Nothing smaller. They also pay more to trucks with sanders (yes you can not have a sander a still plow for the state ) also if you have a computerised speader set up you get more money to. Hope this helps.
