I lived the one man crew out of a back of a truck. It is just not efficient. I also lived the two man/ two mower crew doing full service including bed maintenance weekly. Other mower and trailer was vital to being very efficient which meant probably 3-4 more properties a day.

To add another crew on the cheap and easy of course it will work. Depends on your goals to determine how well it works in the end.
And now that's a question I ask you to answer. How many jobs was you doing before you added 3-4 more?
