Its certainly not refined what so ever, and Im hoping that getting more accurate production rates will allow me to expand this model to my other services. Otherwise I guess Ill need to break out the stop watch and measuring wheel haha.
I gave a ring over to VKA, no answer. I left a message, hopefully they return my call. Cant say Ive ever worked so hard to buy a book in my life. Ill keep you all posted if I get through, or if I find another vendor.
You are not going to get that much detail from VK nor are you going to see production rates for plowing. The business management book is still a good tool with some insight into the landscape / hardscape industry for contractors
