    Just curious for the guys on here who have contracts with malls or shopping centers do you trigger at 1" or 2" or is it all customer preference???

    I do all 2" triggers unless the customer requests something else. But with that said, if its more than I think salt can handle we plow it.

    I usually leave it up to the customer, but I recommend a 1" trigger for commercial properties.

    I prefer no trigger

    It should be up to the contractor to do what will work best for conditions

    We typically plow at 3/4"

    No trigger here either.
    We plow when we want.
