    We have never plowed a gravel lot for a business, only driveways. How much more, if any, would you charge compared to pavement. I'll post a picture of the lot also.

    I charge the same rate...just put on the skids and push. I might back-drag a little more to smooth things out, but it's overkill I'm sure. I've gone back in the spring with a tractor and box blade to fix potholes...for a fee of course.

    It's all about dat ching, bout dat ching...no freebees!

    I do a couple gravel lots. Just raise the plow a hair. Shouldnt really affect the price.

    Once you have a good frozen base it's easy I plow a ton of gravel stuff. I wouldn't charge anything extra personally, you'll make extra cleaning up in the spring time
