    How much money should a 2 man crew bring in for a 8 hour day with a 52" lazer and a 48" walk behind.

    too many factors to consider, size of properties, how much travel time, price of jobs, payroll.

    750-900 seems about right for the equipment we use. huge batwing type mowers should obviously bring in more per hour for equipment reasons.
