Thanks for the info.
I've never pulled a hose. I went straight from using a backpack on a few lawns to getting a z-spray and 1000's of post cards.
I found a few app businesses for sale in my area and it appears they pull a hose based on the equipment list. The accounts are 30-40 minutes away from my shop so I was trying to figure in my added cost. I also wanted to compare the difference to finish a round pulling a hose vs. a ride on.
I was trying to look at it from a time stand point. Something like 100 accounts so I'd need a good week out applying every 6 weeks to finish the round. Then add in 1 day a week between rounds for call backs, estimates, etc.
