I know no one likes to give out numbers on what they charge. I was wondering if anyone would give the percent breakdown? Something like 30% of your hourly rate is labor, 25% is profit, 3% gas/oil, etc.

here this is a handy program to use to help you get a better understanding of costs.

its mainly used for construction equipment to determine what it should be billed out at.

but you can easily adapt it to mowing by combining the total cost of your mower, trimmers, blowers, etc... and acting as if it is one big machine that you need to cover your costs for (a mowing setup technically is one big multi use piece of equip.)
