What constitutes a "push'?

    A Newbie asks: What constitutes a "push'? Is it a single pass of a plow up to 50 feet?
    (assuming we charge $17.50 per push) Would a 12 foot wide driveway up to $50 feet long (straight) (2 pushes) be priced at $35?
    $10 more for up to 75 feet long?

    Thank you - Bill

    The term "per push" usually means per visit.

    Say you have a 2" trigger on a place, and you visit it 3 times during a 6" snow. You would then bill 3 "per pushes".

    Put another way - "Per Push" is clearing any given area of snow.

    Yes. Per plow, per push, per visit, per move....it all equals the same thing. This is not to say that each push equals the same amount of money. For a newbie, you have to understand that there are different price structures for additional amounts of snow. For instance, pushing 8" of snow is not going to be the same price as 2".
