With that nonsense I can calculate what you make per year. 1$ a minute, what a joke. Solo guys may use that and think its good money for just starting out. Well its not. Here's why. With tight routes you can get 4-5 lawns done per hour @ $40+ per lawn= 160 on the low end per hour gross. 2 man crew.

This is true but starting out you don't have enough clients for two people all day or even half a day. Because 4 yards a hour would be 32 yards a day for a grand total of 1280.
