Average price per head

Someone told me what the "national price per head" was for rotors and spray heads on new installs a while back. Is there such a thing? I was thinking it was 75/spray head and 100/rotor
With that said-
Does 90-100.00 per MP Rotator sound about right?
I am coming to this conclusion after drawing the design and pricing out all of the materials.
I know it varies per area and due to soil/material prices/labor prices/etc.
Thoughts?
Please be easy on me. Still new to all of this. I've learned much more on this part of the forum than I ever learned from the Irrigation textbook I have.
Mike

depends on where one is in the country. Some folks will tell you you have tp part price out each job ect . Truth is the market decides the price. I aim to sell 3 out of 5. If Im selling more I raise prices, If Im selling less I will go a little lower.

Pricing your business this way is not the way to do it, because all jobs are not the same.
Site conditions and overhead with many other factors go into a estimate.
One must know cost of doing business before you price a job

I am not pricing my business this way. I am wanting to use this as a reference to make sure my bid is close. I design every system and calculate materials before I submit a bid.
