    We are doing a quote for an apartment complex. In the picture, most of the spaces will be filled, so we will just open up the lanes. The lanes will be about 25-30ft. We will come back later and clean up the parking spots, and finish the sidewalks. Everything is to scale. We will do the sidewalks in one pass with our ATV, and will hand shovel 6 entryways. I am wondering how long you guys think it would take with an 810. We would probably only use the wings for cleanup and backdragging, because the snow is going to pile up on the blade pretty fast. Our price increments are 2-6" base price, 6-10, base x 1.333, 10-14 base x 1.666, 14+ base x 2. We are planning on $110 per hour with the 810, $60 per hour for the ATV, and $40 per hour for shoveling. How long do you guys think it would take? We were thinking about 3 hrs plowing (1 hr to open up, 2 hrs backdragging and stacking), 1/2 hr. ATV work, and 1 hr. shoveling. How long do you think it would take? Any input woud be GREATLY appreciated.

    I have an apartment complex that is set up pretty similar to this one. If my math is correct 2-6 inches of snow will cost them $400.00. I would say in my area that sounds about right. Do you do any sanding or salting? If so about how much does it take?

    by my price list

    0-1.9" --- 120

    2-3.9" --- 216

    4-5.9" --- 300

    that is just for plowing sanding and shoveling is totally different.
