I guess I should have been more clear with my two cents .. lowballing to me means to service below a profit in an attempt to get or steal a customer. There is a limit at the break even point for everyone of course.

If you are making a enough of a profit and are the cheapest price, then of course you are not lowballing, you are doing good business.

Real lowballers always get snuffed out, they have too. I would have thought that a person would have to make at least 40 bucks an hour per person to stay on the right side of profit? But then again maybe I wasnt as streamlined as I thought I was?

With these low prices and cheap equipment, he's still bringing in $30 to $40 per man hour. Read the thread and get your facts right before you talk.
