    I have an interesting bid to work on. Attached is the site map. Buildings are cold storage units and some have been converted for various uses. I don't need to clear any parking spaces, man doors, or OH doors.

    What i have to do is the throughfares and roadways only and the two main entrances off the highway. These areas total 8.15 acres.

    I have SIMA's #'s for plow trucks of 1 acre per hour without any obstructions (8ft straight blade), but I'm thinking this will be as easy as windrowing away from buildings and parting each roadway to the sides.

    Does anyone want to take a stab at how long a F350 with a 9ft V-Plow would take to do this site?

    Are those gravel roads?? I'm with GSS 2-3 hours max, pretty wide open no worries of having to chase wind rows and pleanty of space to push way past end points because there looks to be no curbs. that loos to be a sweet place to plow. If it is gravel slap some shoes on the blade and go to town. with a ton 9'V you should be able to wip threw that.
