    What are you cutting it with? How much did it cost you? How much is your shop payment? Utility bills? Insurance? Fuel? Only you know your expenses...The answer lies there.

    For someone with an 11' WAM, about $50 / week.

    OR for someone with a setup like Flex-Deck.

    For someone pushing a 21" non-self propelled, about $500 / week.

    You probably lie somewhere inbetween.

    ok so then a bid, which i landed, of $155 per week is not to low. I bid lower than normal b/c the house is @ the entrance to a 75+ home development all worth over a million. So i figured that I could make a lil less on them, but put a sign or two outside and get more business in there. I was worried that it was to low but from the responses that I have gotton here seem to tell me that its rite in line. Thanks again guys!
