    I am working on a bid that involves a couple acres to plow- anybody got a time per acre number with a nine foot plow? It is a rectangle shaped warehouse lot that is two acres with no obstructions, I better get a CD player in the truck for next season. My truck is Ford 550, no sanding on this one.

    You can figure about an hour an acre, perhaps a bit less with the 9'. That's figuring straight pushes, no obstacles.

    For a wide open paved lot, no backdragging, no cars or other obstacles and push&pile to the end; using a 9' straight blade - I use 50 minutes per acre for the "base". Increase with deeper snowfalls.

    The would be a good situation for wings, Vplow or a Blizzard plow.
