    i think you going to be hard pressed to get the going rate with a toyota and a 6.6 plow. thats not considered a commercial rig. it wouldnt be no where near as productive as a fullsize with a 8 footer or v plow. i think youds have better luck posting signs or word of mouth and doing driveways. time is money and the little plow would cost to much to hire.

    i was referring to the going rate for MY setup, i am in the process of trying to get driveways now but just thought i'd see if anyone needed help. i've done commercial for many years and smaller rigs are great for loading docks, semi occupied parking lots, and sidewalks on large properties. i also am experienced, which cuts down the worry factor for an employer ( dont have to be worried if a newbie is gonna smash a car, tear up property, or even answer his phone at 2 a.m. when its time for work ) thanks for your opinion though; duly noted
