    Seriously guys, I don't want to be that guy "fishing". So I will ask you straight up. I have been plowing since I was able to physically drive my dads yard truck, but I am just now starting this year to do "accounts". I own a Repossession company and will be using Straight 8's (Fisher) on my wrecker and my pickup. Where do I begin with charging. YES I have searched and searched the previous threads. Nothing specific.

    1. What is a "push" considered? is it the number of times you actually have to push the drive to clear it, or the number of times you actually go back to a specific place per storm? I am thinking the later, but I want to be sure.

    2. If your from Maine, simply don't reply to this question. I could see where it would be...conflicting. I need a simple base line price here guys. Say you get 4" of snow. Simple 1 1/2 car wide drive, 50' or so feet long to a Double wide Garage door, with 15' turn around mid way up. Paved! Open it up at the base, push the lane and back drag the doors, a few clean up swipes on a final plow job if more then one trip to residence. What would one price this at. In case your wondering, the description is my drive, but I have never paid anyone to plow my place, I have simply ALWAYS had a plow and or a Blower. I appreciate the help!

    Feel more comfortable giving me advice with out the "ppl" looking on? Email me direct at RepoMan207@aol.com. Thanks in advance! ussmileyflag
