yards per day

What is the average number of yards you cut per day? I know it depends on size of yards, travel time, and equipment, but i would like to just get an idea.

14-15 w/2 man crew and GMC W3500 (Isuzu NPR). The vehicle makes alot of difference on in and out times.

Well you have a bet. What you may not know is that I have a f350 and 8.5X18 pace enclosed trailer also. I have to say I have had faster in and out times with the Isuzu on residential. Now on commercial properties it doesn't't matter what I take.

i guess it just depends on wht type of spaces you ahve to manuver in. On my route I can drive any size truck I want, and rarely have to back up.

By the way are you the same guy who posted last year in the the pic forum

" 1st year Im broke" you had a little box trialer and what not. If that was you man you made a BIG improvment in a years time! congradulations.

Yes that was me. I landed a couple of good accounts last year and the business sky rocket'ed. Thanks. My residential route keeps us in cul-de-sacs all the time for some reason. The GMC (Isuzu) gets in and out fast and clean.
