    you can come down here and work all day for me for $20/hr if you're bringing your own equipment.

    sears crap, $20/hr is just dandy.
    Professional equipment, $45-120/hr. Of course your mileage may vary.

    60-65 per hour per guy, if you have the right equipement- 1- 52" bunton doesn't say much if your using rakes.........What do you call "Pro stuff?" We need epquipement. What do you average mowing per hour? Let us know and we can go from there.

    how much do you average per hr mowing? ( at the end of the day)
    I average 60-85 per hour-
    I would still up your price as long as you are being as efficient as possible- Get some backpack blowers as well------MUCH FASTER THAN RAKING
    I have 1 job that myself and another guy do in 4 hrs(8man hrs) which used to take 1 guy 1 week to do with a rake. Joel
