    I think last year Power Fuels/Nuverra paid like... $25 or something for chaining up.

    Where I’m at I don’t think we get chain pay but I’ve only done it once since winter so it’s a wash.

    I pass on the entire chain up fee to the driver. If they're willing to throw chains it's worth it to show them they're appreciated

    I was just about to say..... Don’t most jobs get paid by the hour? Hence your getting paid for it?

    Also, chains take 5 minutes on, 3 minutes off - lets be realistic.

    I got this feeling you've never thrown triple rails when you're already sliding down a hill. And paying by the load keeps drivers from milking the clock

    I usually throw my triple before the hill, like any responsible driver :p

    That's neat.

    Learn to quote. It helps filter out the nonsense
