    Gonna be alot less this year, so many people are getting plows in my town, plus I'm gone back to school this year, so I don't have time to do as much plowing as I used to. Used to take me about 10 hours, ohhh the good ole days.:cry:

    usally 8-9 hours to salt and 12-24 to plow depending on how much snow and I get a 4 hour minimum.

    All depends on the amount of snow. At 2" all trucks should be done in 6 hours. If there's 6" then it will take 10+ hours.

    Right now, with all the customers I've lost or given up from last year, I'd say 1-3. But I expect to build it back up so went with 4-7.

    Right now I am about 6-7 hours per route depending on starting time.I really don't like to go much longer then that because the people on the back end of the route just don't understand someone has to be first and someone has to be last.

    It currently takes 24 to 30 hours to finish my route.
    Its done in 8 hour shifts over 3 days depending on amount.
    Its all residental but only 36 drives are full time people the rest is empty lake homes that can be done anytime after a storm.
    If it snows around holiday it can be a very long day....:help:

    4-7 depending on snowfall time of day etc.

    Hoping for more but I doubt it will happen.

    about 8 hours including salting. I couldn't believe people would do more than 12. That would just suck:cry:
