    I have a customer that wants pricing on hauling away snow should the need arise, We do not have the equipment to haul or space dump snow. I am looking for somebody I can sub this out to if they request it. The properties are on the NW suburbs of Chicago (Elmhurst, Park Ridge. Lagrange). Any suggestions?? I will also consider snow melting if they have the equipment.

    ^ price gouger.

    "This video mentions that Snow Dragons cost about $300 per hour to operate"

    ok that was a lowballer....

    "OJ Rinehart, Interstate's president, said the machine costs about $800 an hour to operate. But that's about half the cost of paying $80 an hour for each of many dump trucks that would be needed to haul the stuff away.

    "It would take about 20 dump trucks making two trips per hour to keep up with this," Rinehart said.

    "So you're talking $1,600 per hour, not including disposal costs."

    but then consider where they are, and some price gouging im sure...
    after all "MN nice" rules...

    Maybe I should look into a Snowdragon for next season. Any suggestions on some that will haul snow out, not looking for a bid, looking for some ones flat rate pricing and to be able to charge my customer accordingly Like I mentioned I am not set up to haul snow.
