Did a small seeding job (10 K) for a friend on his farm and told him what it was going to cost UP FRONT. Picture this: This was the side of a hill on about a 30% slope and was eroded pretty bad, so I had to go in and harley rake it and it took 1.5 hours. I then seeded it in two directions with Team Mates and put on starter fert. Then blew on the straw for him. Yes it only took me a total of about 2.5 hours but only because I have the right equipment. I charged in $425 for the hole project from start to finish. This is CHEAP! Anyways, my friend was pissed at me and think I overcharges him! I told him that if this was a residential job and he wasn't my friend that it would have probably cost him about $800 and he just laughed and said he is in the wrong business. I said....well if you have the equipement like myself you wouldn't think so. With my tractor, harley rake and blower I had $36,000 there is just equipment alone. I guess they just don't understand COSTS! Have any of you ever had this happen?
