its about the same around here. there is only one other LCO in my area and we do about the same as you are saying. my area isnt poor just no one wants to pay for the work. i price a little on the low side and figure if i can get more jobs at a low price it will be the same as less jobs at a high price that i cant get. i just gotta work harder every week. its up to u if you want to be a "lowballer" or not. i dont think that setting your price to what the area can handle is lowballing but thats just me.

Mine ran, but wouldn't run at full power, and was hard to start. They replaced the "Grommet" and Fuel line. Done Deal.
