    How do you figure out prices for:

    Pick-up truck with plow
    Mid-to Large frame skidsteer loader
    Shoveling per man
    Dump truck (for hauling snow)
    Salting (per ton applied)
    Calcium (per bag applied)

    The pick-up truck, skidsteer, shoveling and dump-truck are all per hour while the salting and calcium are per ton and per bag (respectively).

    I understand that but i'm looking for a rate to charge for these things, the bid that i'm working on requires a prices per sq foot by inch and a price per hour by piece of equipment.

    Then figure out your labor costs, overhead costs, profit requirements and BAM you have your hourly rate.
