    Pinestraw the bane of my exsitence. Usually is sold by the bale. Cost me 3.25 a bale and I deliver and install for 5.25 per bale. I am a litle low, but only do it for my regular customers. On average one person can throw about 13 bales an hour. Have know idea what a barrel of pinstraw comes out to.

    I take my cost and multiply it by 2.5.
