    I have to give a quote on plowing/salting these properties, everything is paved now, so theres no gravel, very little if any shoveling.
    Im new to the salt game, I have no clue how much salt this would take or what to really charge for it. (and yes, I can get salt)

    3" trigger. and I kind of need work.

    I was thinking $240/push, $150 salt?

    Thanks for input.

    I think your low on the salt side I would look to increase it by at least 1/2 JMO

    How much salt per acre/1000 sq ft is typical?

    I have had good luck basing my bids on 15lbs per 1000sq ft.....

    That looks like about 2 acres........

    So if it is 2 acres...........I think your plowing price is pretty good...........and I would at least add 75% to your salting price......
