Around here $25-$40 per man hour.

thanks, help me out based on your area rate... say 2 men are doing mowing,and its going to take them 1 hour total for them to finish.What would you charge?

sounds like we're in math class :D

Here no less than $50 a man hour...average $60....and sometime more...depends.

To answer your question.....two guys mowing takes 1 hour total to do a job then it is a $100 job.

ok thanks I was just making sure I was hearing it right,and then it made sence!

If I mowed it in 2 hours (myself) it would be $100. at (50. bucks and hour) and that time cut in half with 2 people is still $100.
I had a brain cramp :rolleyes: :p

Im in Maine and trying to figure what to charge (reasonably) without hurting
myself money wise.
thanks guys
