    Hey Grasscapes-<p>We're in west MI., and its pretty normal here for a city driveway to go for $20 per push. Most folks go with a seasonal contract, and those averaged about $185 to $200 before the gas prices shot up. Most of the contracts are at 1 inch or more, but some of our customers prefer only 3 inches and up, especially the &quot;per push&quot; customers.<p>There is a snowplow contractor behind every bush here, however, and that keeps the prices down somewhat. Anything more than a short two car driveway will be more than that for the seasonal accounts, and in the country where I spend most of my time the annual contract would be more like $300 and up. The drives tend to be much longer outside of town, and drifting becomes a factor even without significant snow.<p>With a pull plow and lots of close contract jobs in a suburb setting, there is potential to do about 5 an hour or even better if your route is well planned, so its still possible to make money at it.
