That's nothing, company by me used to run 3 455D's (then 4100's), 2 WB and a GM 300 with a blower. Crew cab IH and 6 guys. 6 backpacks, 6 trimmers, 6x as much travel time. 5 minutes to the next account comes to 30 minutes. 10 becomes 60.

What always blew me away was having 3 $45,000 mowers sitting while a bunch of guys are walking around with $500 backpack blowers and $300 trimmers.

It looked impressive, but there was no way they were making money except on all day sites, which there aren't very many here in GR.
