Nice setup. How much can a feller make (outside of a full time job) pushing snow?

You can make some good coin plowing. If you find the right guy to sub for you can make up to $75-80 an hour.

I have been doing it for years for my fathers company, but I just bought out another business this year and goin off on my own. I took official ownership yesterday and my insurance will go into effect tomorrow. As for pricing I have all records of the company for the last 3 years and pretty much stuck to the previous years pricing, aside from a few I bumped up.

Right now I have about 20 residentials (including Zetterberg ) and 10 commercials. Currently I am doin it all with the same truck, but once we get some heavier snows I will be sending out a couple guys with my jeep to clear walks with snowblowers/shovels

I also have 3 uncles who also have their own snow companies and will gladly use me if I am up to it when I clear my stuff (one is actually taking care of an account for me now that is just too far from the rest of mine)

Thanks
