    Mike S was that $70 an hour for all the equipment or per piece? I just put in a bid on a large parking area and they wanted an over 3" hourly rate. I said $200/hr, but that was for everything I was running. (Loader & truck).

    We just signed two lowes stores for this season. I am looking forward to servicing these sites, they are big pavement, nice and open and they both allow salt bins, very helpful logistically for other sites we service near them.
