    I think it depends on the truck/plow size. Pickup, mason dumps, w/7.5-8' straight or V's I would figure somewhere b/t 65-80/hr. Larger dumps with 9' or bigger would say b/t 100-125.

    i worked for lipinski last season in cranbury he was giving me 70. his subs ranged from anywhere from 70- 80 an hour. i think that is a good number anything else would be a "low baller"

    Snow in NJ

    Well, it is only January 1st. Get ready folks, just my opinion, it WILL snow in NJ! Middle of January to beginning of March is our best times to get significant snow. Tough to believe when it is going to be almost 60 today and I am going out riding the hog :bluebounc You gotta believe though. The snow will be here soon. Happy New Year everyone! :waving:

    Big M....

    Rates will vary based on geographic location, EXPERIENCE, size of truck/plow and demand. My philosophy is if you pay poorly you are going to get poor work. That is why lowballers never keep contracts.
