    I do a small country Post Office, about 20 spaces plus loading dock and 75' of walkway. I use a 0 to 1" to cover the small events, plow or sand/salt or both, and 1-3" per push after that. Our Postal system is screwed up and cheap.

    I think the price of stamps is going up again... :) Every plow job should be based on the area and difficulty of the plow. The more you handle the white stuff at a job the more you can charge. This must be a real Bi*ch for $475.00 a push.
