    we charge 65 $ when its just a pgp swap....


    If i have to work >Straight to labor and materials, with a minium of 45$ 1 hr.

    so that would be about 85-100$ depending on if the customer was nice or not.

    Actually I got $65 for labor and $7.00 for a new 4" toro w/nozzle. Thank God for sawsalls!!! Had to cut around this baby twice as the roots came from a gumbo limbo tree about 30' away and locked onto the head. I'm on an island 5 by 7 miles so trip cost are tiny. My normal service call charge is $65.00 up to 1 hour plus parts. This job used every bit of it.

    I got charged $75 to replace a single head. This is when I learned to do it myself. There really isn't much to it.

    Worst part is that the head didn't even sit right so I had to fix it. It also wasn't adjusted properly so I had to buy a tool to adjust it. They did at least use the same RB 5000 as the rest of the system.

    Too bad you chose to downgrade the head!
     
  9. However there really is much cost to running your own business....

    I didn't say if this was a bad price or not. I'm just saying this is what I got charged so, if anything, the poster was probably undercharging.

    I think it is probably more of an inconvenience for these guys that run their own business to have to come out just to replace a head. I'm sure the majority of the $75 was just a charge for fuel/ time to get to the job.

    I have to say I was a bit ticked when it wasn't done correctly. This is why I learned to do it myself.
