    If the clown is gonna do all that for $360, let him. No way he makes a penny doing it.

    He's doing a 1" trigger. That and it's "per visit"

    I'm willing to bet he wants to push the lot every 1" during a storm.

    He would probably be milking it for all it's worth.

    Oh my. Let him lose money.

    Edit: White Gardens you make a good point. It could be his diary project.

    My rought est. would be charging about $500 for every 1 inch.

    and about $25,000 for a season rate shooting from the hip based on the pics.

    It could be more or less depending on the PITA factor.

    Like others have said, he's going to milk it and make a grand for a 3" storm.

    Well give a update on contract it I won it Reason was Im local
    The bank support the local people Only wish other business that hires Out State Snow plow jockeys would do the same

    I know everybody looks at the low $$ They think they are saving money in long run they are not
    in this case If bank wanted there walks just treated my price was 1/3 of the other guys $360 per visit price
    I get there in 10mins after the call The other guy has to drive 40 miles

    If he's on a 1" trigger and lives 40 miles away, he'll have to sleep in the parking lot during storms.
