    My bids are based off a "standard truck hour", which I equate out to production of a truck and 8' plow is roughly one acre per hr, depending on difficulty. The fact that my trucks have V blades or that we utilize wheel loaders & pushers isn't a factor when pricing per push or seasonal. For what it's worth we do a 3 acre lot in well under an hr, but that's with a 9.5 V blade & 14' Artic on a 2007 Hyundai 740 which has plenty of power for it's size.
