    Hi Folks,

    Putting in a bid for a 700'x5' town sidewalk bordering the state highway. Constant fight with the processed snow pushed onto the walk from the state plows so I have the go ahead to wait until they are done first.
    I will be using a 3016 Mahindra with a 60" blower brought in from about a mile away. Its a straight shot ( no corners or breaks ) except for a telephone pole requiring 10 mins shovel action at the very beginning.
    We have never put in for a sidewalk this large and may not need the big machine everytime...We have smaller blowers if needed. Do I price per equipment used or per event??

    Won't be able to wait till they are done if it is cold. A lot of the stuff they will throw on it will be wet and it will be frozen to the walk. Then would need to ice pick the hole thing. I have been there and the sidewalk was 15 feet from the street
