    What does everyone mean by man hours?

    Does $65 per man per hour mean that if a crew of 2 works for 2 hours that costs the customer $260?

    I have asked this many times before and I want to LEARN right now as said to me many times before.

    PLEASE tell me what this means.

    You are correct. If its a one man crew, per hour and man hour are the same because its just one man.

    You are correct.

    Two men working for two hours= 4 man hours

    You got it. Thats what it means but Ive yet to ever get that much per man hr. I usually shoot for $30 to $35 per man hr cutting. And $45 to $50 per man hr. doing clean-ups
