your starting to sound like one of those guys mowing lawns, that has equipment that is 30 or 40 years old that cut's lawns any size for 35 dollars. mowing, trimming, blowing every thing off and including drive time from account to account which is bad one day in my route the other days its bad. but either way realistically with everything included it takes an hour each lawn, on my thursday route if its dry out and didn't rain the night before I can mow, trim, blow and do two accounts right next to each other in 40 mins, actually that day in general I can get 14 small lawns done all 2-6,000 sq. ft. which is small for my 61" cheetah. if you can only can only crank out 4 or 5 lawns that size in a day by yourself then congrats to you. I personally am the energizer bunny and can trim at 4-5mph, and blow walking just as fast, all day long and I mow 7-8mph on my cheetah, so I can move pretty quick.

Never said anything of the sort sir. It's easy to know who is puffing the chest though
