    Are there many companies that do snow only? Do any of you guys concentrate on primarily snow operations?

    Hi Patrick
    I am one of the guys here that only do snow. I do not cut lawns because there are so many guys cutting for 20 bucks a lawn. Beside's I play in the summer, gp flying, golfing and spending time up north. What part of Michigan do you work?

    Regards Mike

    We're currently about 70% snow. We also do sealcoating and striping and a little bit of lawn that we have left over.

    We concentrate on snow for most of the year.

    We're kind of the opposite of most landscape companies. We do things during the summer to keep our key winter people busy.

    Snow Rates ...

    Hello Snow Plowing and Removal Companies,

    I need a helping hand, I have been a plower for some time but have been a subcontractor for others and actually can use help on bidding techniques on larger commercial lots.
    The going rates for subs to get paid on wheel loaders $150.00-$175.00 per hour ( with snow pusher mounted ), bobcats $75.00-$95.00 per hr. with snow plow blades.. / Pick up trucks average $75.00 per hour.

    ** I need as much help as you all are willing to give, I am in the chicagoland area, and wish to win seasonal snow removal contracts, I believe what all of us wish to sign up....

    *** is there a sq. foot price ?
    how do the big boys bid like " Snow Systems " in the Chicagoland area is I believe the largest snow outfit.

    *** Salting how much to charge...

    *** Please help...if anyone is not my competition and you do not mind helping a guy out please do so....it will be very much appreciated !!!

    Sincerely, TED:help: :) http://www.plowsite.com/images/smilies/help.gif
    :help:*** if you have time ...I can be emailed directly @ flash.farms@yahoo.com....
