    make the most you can, surely it's at least one of the reasons you decided to go into business.

    Will you service IA? I know it is a trip. You can plow my drives and we can split the 30 pack of Old Style I get per hour?

    Sounds like a rate that you can make some good money at to me...

    But you'll never get a way with that with resi's, that's why all my lawn customers have there own plow guy to...cause I won't even bother.

    $100- 125 in omaha. Still idiots in omaha that work for $75hr. But we only get to plow 5-7 times per year. 20hours * $100 = $2,000 * 5 storms = $10,000
