How big of an area do you cover? 5, 10, 15 mile radius? Curious to see
believe it or not, unfortuantly my work radius is about 45 miles... unless I schedule only work in the city, I have to travel a little ways to get to my jobs, once I am there...i makeayup:ayup:ayup:
About a 20 mile radius
Lawn maintenance is about a 25 mile radius.
Bush hogging a couple hundred miles depending on how much work is at stake.
I will gladly roll 100 miles for a 10 hour day at 125 per hour. Have pulled 350 miles for a 3 day $3800 job stayed in motel 3 nights at 55 per night. Diesel in the truck for a 700 mile round trip was 190 dollars and diesel in the tractor was about 90 for all 3 days. this left 3350 to cut between maintenance and profit. figure profit is about 65 % when tractoring so $2180 profit in 3 days.
15 is my limit for lawns, and depending on the size of the landscape or cleanup job
We have a really tight route for our residentials, but for our townhouses we are about 70 kms from west to east and 30 from north to south. As long as it snows at the right time traffic isn't that bad.
25 but try to stay with in 15 I mean do you see many lawns in these pictures? You gotta drive a little here.
That is so beautiful there. You can probably buy 10 acres there for what a flower pot full of land costs here. We are up to virgin land selling for 75,000 per acre. waterfront 1,000,000 per acre
Yea, you can get a farm for what a lot cost some places.
