I'm definitely not paying anyone that works for me 40-50/hr. I don't charge by the hour if that's what you are getting at. That's basically the number I aim for and bust a$$ as hard as possible to get that, primarily with clean ups. Around 60-65/man hr for mowing is what I aim for. The numbers vary for installs depending on what the task at hand is.
