I AM in the south....and yep....man hours here are also 60-75. It is called knowing your cost. Factor in your fuel...your oil...your belts...your misc repairs....blades....advertising....office expenses (even small guys have this)....not to mention license...liability ins....auto ins ( the commercial type)...workers comp.... if you can work and cover cost at 30 pmh.....you havent truely looked at your cost. Hell...8 years ago it cost me $20 an hr just for the mower...not including the man sitting on it! Lowballers dont have to low ball to get business. You can still get business and be respectable to the industry...just be willing to lose a bid here and there...i will take my one $70 pmh over your 3 $30pmh any day.
