    Is it for all the buildings or only the big one?

    Looks like about 7 +/- acres, without the front lot.

    1 backhoe with pushbox for large lot and 3 trucks for the rest- about 2.5 hours for 2-4" (plug in your hourly rate.)

    Salt - 3 tons for lots (dont know how much you are getting it for and want to make off it)

    Sidewalks - I cant even tell how much there is.

    Maybe we can help

    We have a snow and ice management estimating CD that is simple and accurate to use. You simply fill in the blanks with your equipment type and size, property size and level of difficulty for each job. It will then calculate time and material based on your company's costs per hour of operation for plowing and material. It will calculate per push, per hour or seasonal pricing.

    If you have any questions, check out our web site or give us a call. Thanks and have a great year.
