    I did a search but couldn't find much on this,
    but how many feet of edging (maintained /w stick edger) or line trimming is reasonable for an hour? Not looking for break neck speeds, but something I can convert to man hours. Any increment you know off hand would be very helpful. Thank you.

    Too many variables for one certain figure.
    Consider the following, then price each job, suggest not using a formula but total time spent on job should determine price.

    How good/productive is the operator?
    How good is the equipment?
    What are the conditions like on the job? If over grown, will take much longer.
