$1200 is going out for payroll (for 2 man crew), 3 to 400 for fuel, 300 or so in equip. depreciation, a few bucks for wear on parts, and $60 per mowing week for commercial rated insurance. This doesn't include any building, property taxes, energy bill, administrative costs, and any other misc. expenses. To profit 2 to 3000/week in mowing, a crew would have to cut 3900 to 4900 of grass a week. That is $780 to $980 per day. That would be the most lucrative 2 man mowing crew I've ever seen in my whole life.
Thank you, Dad - for always being the dad that you were. You truly are my hero. You always were.
