    1 Mill gen liability = $685 per year
    Workmans comp = $1,580 per year (changes every year depending on earnings)
    Commercial truck coverage on 4 trucks = more than both the above

    I assume none of you have spraying of fert and weed on your liability. My insurance jumped from 580.00 to 1700.00 when I added spraying to my liability.

    $440 a year with 2mil gen liability, 16,000 in equipment coverage, covers herbicide and pesticide up to 1mil.

    truck is $760 a year, full coverage plus $2000 coverage for the plow, and that covers plowing.

    Both are with erie insurance, I don't know how they do it with the gen liability, I was getting prices of 900-1700 then they came up with 440, i jumped on it. I went with an insurance broker, she always shops for the best price, almost went with progressive on the truck but erie came in cheaper, I think because i already had the business with them.

    I'm in IA so hopefully this will be close to what you get:

    $300/yr for $2mil. liability (no coverage for equipment loss)
    $500/yr for the truck in the sig, no driver except me.
    $50 for the trailer in the sig.

    $500 deductible I believe.

    Are you east coast guys killing a bunch of kids? Your rates are so high:dizzy:
