6.5 hrs to do it with travel and everything. $892.50 hr!(
This was with materials and labor included. Sure wish I could have that 6.5 hr day 5 days a week.
Please clarify...were all 3 apps a total of 8.5 acres @ 6.5 hours? If so, that would be approximately 2.8 acres per app = $490 per application X 3 = $1470.00. This totals 2.17 hours allowed for each app. That would be $225.81/ hr. I'll assume this is wrong.
If that is wrong, then are you saying each application totals 6.5 hours per 8.5 acres x $175.00 = $1487.50 per app? 3 total apps = $4462.50. That also means a total of 24.5 acres treated. Divide that by 6.5 hours and that means you are doing 3.77 acres/hour. That's moving.
That is awesome if you are correct.
