    300 a day when I was solo mowing
    Now with helper 350-500 most days are 400
    Only mow 4 days a week plus every year the route gets tighter

    Honestly... I work 40hrs at another job. So I get about 3-4 lawns in a day (7-
    2:30). At least $40 a lawn is about $120 to $160 for 7.5 hours. Thats for mowing. Not talking about landscaping...now thats different numbers.:cool2:

    Not really when you consider most solo small time guys are spending over $200/week in gas alone!

    It's time to make people realize it's not the 90's anymore with buck and a quarter a gallon gas!

    Sounds good. :clapping:

    Why the concern of a buck a minute being a lot to shoot for then?

    With a tight route like that you should be exceeding that easily.
