well, I never fall for that crap of "do this super cheap, and I'll give you a ton of super cheap stuff" lol
As for equipment used; I got a brand new worker and he(his wife) was worried that he wouldnt get hours so he was gonna go to his old job if I couldn't guarantee a certain amount of hours (awsome worker, so i wanted to keep him) so I dropped him off with a honda homeowners that I use as a back-up mower, (old aluminum deck). I have a brand new honda commercial, but $1200 vs.$120 in grass that could have anything in it.
and gave him 2 buckets and a string trimmer for the fence (here's your hours) and went to see my accountant and have a cup of coffee and I have a guy who works at home who wants me there between "such and such" a time so i went to do that.
I got back a couple hours later and helped him finish for an hour.
I wanted to charge a min. of $200 but I also wanted the job so I bid and got it for $170 mow only and bag/haul figuring as long as it took my guy less than 15 hours I was in the black lol
