    Im doing a L shaped parking lot that is wide open and is .5 acre in total area. Included are sidewalks that would be done by shovel 150x4'.
    Thoughts on a price?
    We have a f450 truck with plow

    How long will it take you to plow? What do you need to make an hour? What prices can u charge in your area?

    I was thinking 1 hour using truck with plow, 1 hour with guy on dingo/shovel for sidewalks.
    $300 up to 3", add 25% if 4-6"

    That's awesome............except it would go for around $75 around here.

    And unless it's really difficult and your shoveler is using a sand pail type shovel, you need to revise your time estimates.

    Upon further review, after seeing your geographical location, and knowing your fixed costs, I say $8.32

    why would you need a dingo? go get a snowplow shovel, thats not enough to need a dingo or another person IMO.

    We have one, about 15k sq ft split into 2 different lots, front and back of building, with a total of around 150/4' of sidewalks. takes 30 minutes with 1" of snow. 20 to plow 10 to shovel, shovel everything into lot first then push. we charge $150 for it. Nobody likes shoveling, charge for it

    I agree with Andersman. By the time you unloaded a dingo I could have that walk cleared.
