    I get about 50 an hour. what equipment would you be using? how much will that equipment cost you to run? how much are you paying the help? tell me more about your operation and i could maybe give you a ball park on what you should charge.

    alright that would make your overhead about $7 an hour so about $47 an hour plus what ever you drive to the job site, gass,mileage. so you like me should be looking for about $50 an hour +dumping fee but will your area pay this? call your competion and say i'm wondering what your going rate per hour is to have someone come down and move so some leaves (thats what i did). hope this helps

    Usually around $60-70/hr here in Northern, NJ. Where in NJ are you, why are you doing leaves NOW?
