we do everything per job, it would be stupid to charge per hour when you have 4 guys and a big blower, we are banging out yards that would take most companys 5 hours to do in 2-2.5 hours. i charged a guy 500 bucks today and only spent 2.5 hours there, thats with load and unload time as well. im not going to get paid less because we do leaves twice as fast as most.

i agree 100% i dont like the idea of the hydro pumps and motors on the bigger machine, i just know it will cost an arm and a leg to fix em when they break.
