That's just it, I had this huge job, and the rest were jobs that took me less than an hour by myself. I'm not paying 4 guys to watch me mow, or turn an hour job into 30 min. One of my biggest issues was my help... Dad liked to ride around on the mower... No walking for him. My wife, as much as I love her, liked to duck out on the hard work too. So I had one worker that was working at 50% and one at maybe 75%.

Fuel cost was a lot more than $70.... At least 30 hours a week x 1.5 gal/hr x $3.50/gal=$157.50. And that's only when gas is that cheap... We saw over $4/gal for a while this year.
