    Hey i used to plow for the state, and stopped 12 years ago. Does anyone have the running rate sheet for all the different size trucks. Also does anyone know about how many hours the state gives you per year. So the running per hr rates would be great.

    I used to do large commercial parking lots, but lost them because a friend of the owner took them, so now i am on the cities, and they give crap for hours

    yea, you get a good amount of hours, i just wanted to know an estimate, but ik its almost double the city hrs. But the salt on state routes kills the truck man

    If you have a pick-up your will not get on next year they are making major cuts. 26K+ trucks. Preferably ten wheelers with spreaders and wings is what they are looking for.
