    I plowed them as a sub one year. Meaning the guy that had it subbed me/my company to do it. They use a local contractor here. I bailed him out after the first couple snows b/c he couldn't handle it and took it over from then on. It was a seasonal for him but I billed him per push/hour. We probably had 25 events total. Was a nice gig. Too bad he was a greedy idiot and lost it. It was one of my favorite lots to date.

    I did ours with trucks at the time b/c that's all I had available so late in the season, but I'd have a loader on it if it were my own account. It was about a 16hr lot with trucks (4 times 4), seasonal roughly $50k, but I'm sure they're not all the same size.

    I worked for Cabela's for awhile. Most of the stores start out with their own maintenance dept. doing it. Our store would handle it up to 5" anything over 5" they had a contractor hired to do. Our maintenance dept had 2 Dodges with Meyers plows and 3 or 4 Gators with plows. They had no idea what they were doing though!

    I guess cabelas isn't like Walmart or target were they got to find the cheapest way out.

    Surely you have more aspiring dreams than plowing Cabelas. How 'bout winning the lottery one day and never having to plow your own drive, then letting the poor shmucks that plow Cabelas come do it?...:drinkup:

    You got that right, some people never sleep. Coming and going all night long.
    Packing in groceries at 2 and 3 AM, young teen girls prancing around the complex at all hours.
    You know they can't be up to any good.

    Idiots walking around that look sketchy enough to make you lock the doors and touch the side arm to make sure its still in reach.
    The same idiots that nearly got plowed into a snow pile........
    What are these clowns doing at 2 to 3 AM when its below 0 out wandering around???????

    I probably don't want to know, lol.
