    Hi guys, you have a great website here and vast knowledge. I am here to acquire some assistance on a bid. I was plowing a subdivision yesterday and was approached to plow a church, that was not marked and 4 inches of wet snow. I told him my quote and was told I was very high and he has no choice and go ahead and do it. Just plow, no salt.

    Thanks. I charged him $200 with 4" so I got lucky. Its a church/daycare so I am hoping to have him sign a contract this week for 125 on 2" trigger. Thanks again !

    40 min to push 4" of heavy wet snow using a 79' k30 with a western straight 7'6. The guy pays me o the spot always and brings me cars to work on so am pleased. I bend a bit for a church and daycare.

    I figure at 20min job at 4'' with my setup

    Looks like a real easy lot to clean if you have a plan before stating it
