I ususally only work about 4 hours on Saturday. But if we got rained out like Thurs and Fri then we will work the whole day Saturday

If you mean mowing on Saturdays, we don't unless we get backed up cause of rain. But I do all the weekly maintenance on Saturdays on 7 big mowers which takes a while (most of the morning) including blade sharpening.

The afternoon is reserved for sales calls, estimates, going to the dealer, getting supplies, etc.

We work Saturdays all season but only till around noon. It gives us a day to get stuff done or get caught up if we have a rain day. Just My two Cents

I'm part-time so I use Saturdays to mow the yards/acreage that I use the rider on. I am at some places a few hours with the rider.

Only if I absolutely have to. Usually it's due to bad weather delays.

I think you're asking the wrong question

This thread should have read who doesn't work on Sat...... It's just par for the course especially when weather doesn't cooperate during the week..... who works Sundays? Anyone who wants to get the jump on next week or whose behind from last week.

Only Sunday we will work is if we are tearing down our booth at the trade show ... once a year.
With the short season we have here you have to work Saturdays ... If a guy has special plans it's no problem to get the odd one off.
