perma green users-efficientcy

I was wondering from those of you that use the perma green power spreaders what kind of sq footage you get done per day? I know drvie time and other factors can effect how much someone gets done but I'm trying to figure what someone should be capable of getting accomplished daily, weekly as a one man crew. Assuming you're spraying the lawns at times and other times you may not, what are some averages?

I bought a Perma Green back in April. My best day so far was 350,000 sq. ft. spread and sprayed, in 8 hrs. I average 150,000-200,000 per 8 hrs. I work solo. ED

When you're in the app bus, you leave out the 1000 part

I figure somewhere in the vicinity of 200 M sf , is normal, with minimal drive time from job to job and possibly some drive getting out and back to the shop. I got to believe 500 m sf is either unrealistic or conceivably the lawns average 25-30 M sf!

We run 3 units out of our shop. The daily average is 250,000 sq. ft. These trucks are also doing a few quotes and a few service calls each day. We also plan on our units having a breakdown once every 3 weeks.

250 m sf seems do-able if there is good density and relatively nice size lawns. I know though when i push 250 on smaller lawns like 10-15 m sf , then the quality of work gets worse. Of the 250 m sf, how many stops are in that square footage?

you have one guy working a 40 hour schedule handling 2000 acounts with a ride-on? Are they only getting 2 apps a years?
