Hey Tammie.... I think this is what you've been looking for!

Dave even posted a picture of it right between the main ad and the fine print.

Click the image to open in full size.

I have a bigger supply, willing to undercut those prices by 20 dollars a load.

You are supposed to be able to see a mall in that picture, not piles of snow that are hiding the building.

Yes they are over 25 feet tall and you can just see the corner of JC Penny by the right light pole.

Here's a stunner....my SIL works for Wally World....they have lots of the white frozen stuff piled all around the parking lot....their contractor wants to charge them 30K to haul the white stuff off the lot!

YGTBSM!!!!! Then I heard about this guy in Baltimore...he's got a snow melting machine. It takes 2 tandem axle loads at a time and melts it...and he's charging the City of Baltimore 200K PER DAY to dispose of their white stuff!

Amazing....SIMPLY Amazing!

Stop and think for a minute.

1 BTU raises 1 pound of water 1 degree at 60 degrees F.

Wanna guess how many pounds are in a tandem dump truck bed?

I cubic foot of compacted snow will weigh well over 20 pounds after it has been plowed.
1 cubic foot of water weighs 62 pounds, 7.48 gallons per cubic foot.

20 foot x 8 foot x 8 foot tandem bed, 1280 cubic feet of snow, 25,600 pounds at 20 pounds per cubic foot.


128,000 BTU's to raise the temp about 5 degrees and melt one truck load and turn it into 3200 gallons of water.

If you could capture 100% of the heat released from burning diesel fuel, one gallon would melt one truck load.
Figure in heat lost from the flue and tank, probably more like 3 or 4 gallons per truck load.

How many gallons do you think it takes to run that thing for 8 hours.
That is going to be a considerable fuel bill.

Add in the cost of the rig, machinery to load it, insurance and wages on top of that 200,000 per day is not that much any more.
The worst part, what do you do with it for the rest of the year and the winters when there is no snow?

Those payments are still due even if it is sitting in a warehouse somewhere, which is also costing you.
