    I want to know how many yards a day on average you guys can knock out with a two man crew. I know there are many variables, but I want to know a general number on average sized yards (6000-10000 sq. ft.) I have a 44" and 30" ZTR and all the trim and blow equipment needed. I know that travel time is the biggest issue, but I plan on setting up routes that make that a minimum. Thanks in advance for any replies

    anywhere from 1 commercial or probably 40 small res because of travel and loading / unloading time.
