    After re-reading a few post - I think we need to know more about your operation - you do more single jobs with profits higher than what some of us make in an year? Show me the............ forget the money - show me the work!

    $90 vs $110 an hour - I know my cost - been doing this for along time and and I am sure with all the fancy IRON that the excavtor man has - he needs $110 an hour with that skid. So throwing in on a hunch - not really! As far as it not being for me - same can be said as above - not really.

    i could shock people on how low a startup cost a true business needs , i love it on here how everyone says it cant be done and i look back long before i came to ls and its working fine at most points i love it . lol


    Ok do you know to the penny what was your overhead for 2009?
    I am curious, i run same routes you do , i cut same grass, but what really opened my eyes up is not grass, Landscaping and warking with materials has really tought me great deal how precise you have to be to turn cents in to tens of thousands.

    econ 101 - marketing=%mark up on those said materials=profit. Some greater than others but still basic.

    I am still waiting for your brightness to appear so please share with us your magic by turning a penny into thousands!

    meets1 that is why i said you may be in trouble 90 an hour to opperate is high to me ( i am unsure of your equpment we have a asv-rc30 and it can opperate for 60 an hour and i can make good money on it it is how we look at it, nothing more
