    I am thinking about bidding this lot, it is about 60,000 SF. i was thinking, $350 -$400 for 3" to 6" and then double for 6" to 12" per push including salt. haven't bid a job this big before so any help would be appreciated...

    Thanks

    Are you using bulk or bag salt? Do you have any other accounts near by?

    That sounds a little high, but i live in another area than you. You can figure about one acre(44000 sf) of a few inches is going to take you about an hour. Salt I get $15 for an 80 lb of salt spread. It just depends what you charge an hour. I came up with 285, but like i said i dont live in your area. It takes about the same amount of time to plow 6" as it does to plow 2" Hope this helps.
