    Look in the phone book for larger snow removal contractors in your area and give them a call. Also go to the SIMA web site and look for contractors in your area, that should be available on the fre side of the site.

    Rates are very subjective, and geographic in nature. Ask other people that sub and see what they are getting. But 60 an hour does seem resonable.

    55 to 65 is the going rate for the area using your own truck & ins.

    When I started five years ago going rate was $ 35/hr, just looked at a truck a guy was selling, turns out he did alot of sub work (3 trucks worth), was geting 30 - 35/ hr, he didn't get specific, but did say he often times didn't get paid from contractor or not all, I don't know what he had for insurance, ect. I have seen rates advertised in the newspaper for $ 50/hr, I looked into what I could pay subs this year it was definitly in that range, these are for pickups with straight blades, more experienced more money obviously.
