(green scape i think he is a new guy who thinks no one is better then him lol

perfect how many dumps a day do you/your crew collect of grass a day with that walker ? we average around 50 a day )

50 a day????? and you charge only 35.00$ an hour per men per hour??? o my you realy do well. I dump 3-5 yards a day. And I dont use walker to mow big properties dummy walker is ghs if you dont know what that is ( Grass Handling System) not sh++ picker upper. I can do that 13 acre property with 60 inch ferris bring everything in to center use 6 blades on ferris, high and gattor, make midlle 3 passes by the time all leafs get to the center going thrught 6 blades there is not much left yet everything is spotless then , I mulch leafs in the center with ferris going in reverse with discharge closed about 6 times and then suck up dust with walker which equals to 30-50 bushels.( happy) use it I just saved you some more years of trial and error. When I haul Trailer to recycling. My leafs are mulchedin to compost smaller then recycling center offers.( sharpen your blades daily and you will save 1 -2 hours a day of working with doll blades, onother secret, when sharpenning your gators sharpen your sides too and after wards spray d 40 underneight deck.Then I use rope on discharge and any time i need to control the discharge in split secont i have control.Pitch your deck inthe back 1/2 inch for leaf clean up

----------------To be quite honest, those that are charging 30/per man hour are not the ones I worry about. Its those that don't even know what they charge per man hour is who I always worry about. When its all said and done some underbid so badly the whole crew doesn't make even avg $20/hr. Those are the one that screw up the bids and skew you clients perceptions. Thats who I worry abou-------------






NOW that is a statement of a entrepenuer that know what it is like to bid on a job that has been maintened by mickey mouse family.

PTL, Trimming bushes too often can and will cause problems down the road. You will eventually be left with a green shell and the plant will loose its vigor. Also it will create problems with air circulation which can lead to disease. Do you also do selective pruning? If not, I would advise it.
