    I am subcontracting for a guy for a fixed price per hour. Its a good rate for are area. The question I have is. I am gonna be salting now with the same guy. If I am just salting in a light storm not plowing should the hourly rate be cheaper or the same? If cheaper how much cheaper?? Whats realistic? Gotta go put a new salter on the truck! Thinking tornado or salt dogg. Thanks for your help!

    The same. What is your basic duty in either situation? Drive the truck..Whether it's got a plow on it or a sander - your duties are still the same - operating the truck. BUT - you should be adding the cost of material (including markup) to your hourly rate for driving.

    What's so "Stressed" about it?
