When does solo pricing become too much money?

I'm solo for the most part just family help here and there. I charge 60 a hour for mowing and leaves. How many hours is too many hours for one person charging 60 a hour before it becomes over priced?? I know this question has many variables but I have some good size jobs that I might be over charging and some I just can't charge my rate. My main one I'm questioning takes about 80 man hours for leaves. The owner has a full time worker that helps when he can so I end up putting in about 60 man hours. 3600 for leaf clean up is a little steep. I'm guessing that companies around me probably charge around 20-30 a man hour maybe I'm wrong but would like to here from solos and guys with crews.
