Production goals

What are folks using for production goals per day - square footage, $, combination of both, or something else?

How close together are your customers?
If you are driving less than 60 miles per day--about 150,000 sqft per day--less if driving to spread out sites.

Agreed - lets get through the spring rush and line something up. Would like to do some benchmarking and share experiences.

Are we talking 200 profit. Is this push spreading and dragging hose or using ride on. We usually try to get 1800 a day. Obviously that's not all profit but well over 500 a day profit after taxes and material and labor isn't to far off for us. We are relatively small to small mid size company. My mowing crews need to pull in 800-850 a day for a 3 man crew. I obviously love more but that is quotas. YMMV and that's what makes the world go round. Let's keep it going, more responses

We try to get $800-$1000 per day depending on the round...... some days we can do $1,500 when doing bigger open lawns.....$1,800 would be difficult for us... we have very small lawns with alot of obstacles and tight areas...which means no ride on
