We've been asked to bid on a large retail mall and we're gunning for two other fairly large commercials kitty-corner to the mall, plus another large lot a couple blocks up the street. IF we get them it seems like a perfect scenario for a loader w/pusher. In Iowastorm's post Lazer gave an estimate for leasing for the winter. What I'd like to know is roughly how many thousand square feet per hour will a loader with a box clear. Obviously the size of box and the amount of snow are important variables. So for arguement's sake how about a 16 footer in 6" of snow? Oh, and where should we check for leasing/renting? Equipment rental company plus construction companies? Anywhere else? Thanks.
