    $175 per push to plow, $150 per application to salt. Sidewalks not included.
    The islands on the top side are a time eater...the shipping area is too...

    But, if I lived there in Michigan, just to be competitive, $80 to plow, $100 to salt.

    Empty lot, right to left, crowding towards the lawn. Working my way around the building.

    Full lot, aprons and drive lane.

    Probably should add 2 min to salt unless your using a push spreader.

    Guess I'm not doing it wrong.

    1-2" I can have it done in a half hour. Or less.

    5 minutes to salt max.
