Are you a partner, subcontractor, employee?


You contradicted yourself too, you said you know how to get the job done perfectly with any piece of equipment, then said the price is killing you. That’s not perfect then.

Anyone can push water across a parking lot, you need to be both a good businessman and a good operator.

the company pay my $75 an hr I use my truck and plow is time to split need some help to do a Estimate
Ok, so you're leaving the company and doing your own thing. Cool.
I don't like to price jobs by the hour, because then I have no will to become more efficient as I'll be making less money unless I hike the price up. When I'm pricing a job, figuring my costs and such, I can come pretty close to estimating how long it will take to service the property.
I enjoy plowing, but I like salting better just be smart about it.

I'm not even going to attempt to read or understand it until it's written in English with proper grammar and punctuation marks.

I'm thinking you need to know your costs before you look for any advise on bidding. Pricing is different in different regions. If you been subbing you should know how long something should take you to complete.

If you don't know how to calculate your cost and put a reasonable profit I would seek help on how to make that happen first, no shame in that.
