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.
