    it's hard to say different prices in different area's some say around here they charge 75.00 per hrs but thats bs you would'nt be working if that were the case me my self I try to stick with 45-50 per hour 2 men plus dump fee's.

    is that 45-50 per man or total? if thats total you must be using a couple of rakes cause thats the only way you will make any money. i charge $100 per hour for 2 guys min 1 hour but ive got the proper equipment to work very efficently. ive also got enough work to go 6 days a week from when the leaves start till around Christmas as long as the weather cooperates.

    I believe this whole hourly argument boils down to equipment and experience.

    The way i do it is start at a cheap price the first year like $60 and the next season $65 and raise it every season if they stick with you and like the way you do your job

    So what should two guys with backpack blowers charge hourly? I was thinking around 60-65 depending on the distance from house.. We are going to be using two brand new echo 755 blowers dont want to wear them out and not have anymore i made from them besides what i pocketed..
