evrything i have is payed for. that is just for the park it's self. the lots are done biweekly at $10 per lot and $35 for over grown lots. it is all straight mowing with not much in the way.

That would be good money for 3 days a week work. IMO mobile home parks are alot of work, alot of garbage, alot of trimming, alot of complaints.

You say 24 hours total work. Is that one 8 hour day x 3 guys? Is this the hours per week or per month and is that the price per week or per month. I can't tell what you numbers mean but if you get $40 per man hour that should cover your overhead and profit. I would figure total man hours per visit multiply by how many service visits per year / multiply by $40 divide by 12 and that's your monthly invoice.
