Around 50-75K depending on the year and how the winter is as we plow as well. Have seen as high as 100K a year when we were running our Triaxle Dump truck.

I depreciated my truck as a business expense so I can't claim mileage. Only the cost of fuel.
This means I have to keep the truck fuel separate from the mower fuel so I can get the $.30 road tax back for the mowers.

I have two credit cards, one for the truck, one for the mowers. Plus I keep receipts.

Annually it's about $1,500 for the truck, $1,400 for the mowers.

Thanks Toro,

Roughly $400 a month in the mower during growing season. I burn 5-6 gallons of gasoline a day, if its a full schedule day. Some days I only work half the day, just because I still have room to grow.

I try not to pay attention to the diesel i put in my truck. It puts me in pain everytime I fill up. Another $130 down the toilet, I dont even like looking at the meter, i just ignore it most of the time. I fill up 2 times a month on average.

$100-$120/week between mowers and truck. I'm at 30 accounts ranging from postage stamp to an acre/1.5 acres. 200 miles a week on the truck.

16k miles last year between 2 trucks at $5.7k. Hope to be $3.1k this year with one different truck.

I have six customers. Totaling about 52 acres. All cut up into little parcels of turf. A customer yesterday had 3 miles of sidewalk and curbs to edge. It took me 2 hours to edge, 1 1/2 hours to blow off the clippings.
