    I used to do a private school that was mainly just straight roads, 3 passes each direction. You'll make better time than most think. Salting was cake, in and out and hardly any material used. As long as you can window to the outside, that account is cake

    I'd figure you're output of salt per minute and figure how quick you can buzz in and out of there.

    Well that's the conversation I need to have with them is if I can row it off to the sides into the parking places or do I need to carry it to be stacked in a yard. Completely changes the scope of work when that's considered. I'm just taking an educated guess but somewhere between 6-10 tons of salt per storm? I'm almost wanting to think it would take my current dump and an additional dump Setup the same way maybe 3-4hrs to plow it. Mainly because of all the dead ends....

    It's not super clear on the pic Wes but is there parking against the grass in some places?

    A wheeler load of salt seems like a bunch for that lot

    I would bet you wouldn't use more than a ton for salt.

    No where near that amount.

    I'm with Jason. Might use +/-1 ton.

    Really? I need to finish measuring it all but I know it's at least twice the size of my other apartment complex and we generally use a ton-2tons there.... There was a good bit of wasted material with the old spreader though

    I bet that account wouldn't take more than an hour with a truck and blade. We have a school that's about 2 miles of roadways that I plow in 20 minutes. 16 foot backblade windrowing to each side makes damn good time.

    However, if you have to take it to ends and it can't be plowed like a typical city street, it'll be a lot harder and take a lot longer.

    For salt, we use about 1500 pounds on 2 miles of roadways that are 24 feet wide. I love streets. Easy peasy on plowing and salt.

    Use this site to help you with remote bidding, it's worked well for me. All you need to do is type in the address and put down the markers of where you are trying to estimate and it will calculated either area or length as you dictate.
