    And lose the straight blade, at least get wings.

    it wouldn't take that long.

    1 to 1.5 hours. Seems like a lot of decent areas to plow snow. Why do they want it all in that one area?

    I haven't bid on it yet, I'm waiting to hear from a place down the road first. I was thinking around an hour, but I'm planning on building a set of wings. I was thinking putting the snow in the blue during bussiness hours, after hours where ever. The grass area by the blue is actually an embankment and is where the previous guy was putting the snow.

    This one seems easier then the other post asking for a time & a price. I would go with an hour.

    Longer than an hour...you've got some backdragging plus plowing around those cute little center islands will slow you down quite a bit. If you could put the snow in several different places you could probably make good time but if it's all gotta end up in the blue area, you're looking at an hour and half with the size plow you're thinking of using.

    After hours I could put the snow where ever. During bussiness hours that's how the lot usually looks. Not that I get a lot of take-out from there or anything.

    I would say 1-1.5 hours with 8' straight with only 2" of snow.

    now that i know what you think of the lot, i would give it 1 solid hour with a 6" or less storm. with a larger storm, 1.5 - 2 hours depending on the ammount of snow.

    Couple of hours to be safe, double on a heavy dumping, Who's idea is it to pile all that snow in that corner?

    I would say an hour and half with wings to give a nice clean up. A few obstructions, but pretty straight forward...good luck on the bid. find the square footage and i can give you a better estimate...
