Landscape Curbing

Do any of you guys do concrete landscape curbing? I'm thinking of getting into this and was wondering if you do it what do you charge per foot, what kind of machines do you use, what is it costing you for materials? I know around the KC area they are charging $10-$12 a foot. I am trying to find a used machine and I have 3-4 people interested in it already. The machine I like is the GT1000 looks to be a pretty good machine from videos I have watched. What does lawnsite say?

Landscape curbing hit a peak here about 5 years ago, and from what I can tell, it's starting to go by the way-side though a few people still have it installed.

We install brick edging set in mortar right at grade. It's a better look with the same or better results, I have no real equipment in it besides wheelbarrows and shovels and get close to $10.00 a foot for the edging.

3 of us did 130' in 2.5 hours. Two guys mixing 20 bags of mortar and one setting bricks.
