  1. Did you forget to add in the $25,000 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4, trailer etc......

    Yes $100,000.

    LGF, I did forget the ram and the trailer. I guess it would take a while to drive the dixie and the lazer to each stop. For all that equipment, $150 an hour seems pretty reasonable. What is the best day you have ever had doing cleanups with that setup?

    I understand you are being sarcastic here but I don't understand why you would take a sarcastic attitude about this.

    You come in here, a relative newcommer (at least I hadn't seen any of your posts this entire winter) and tell everyone you charge almost $100 per man per hour with no explaination (until we ask) as to how you arrive at that rate. So we are left to assume that, like most of the rest of us, you do a clean-up with the usual equipment (rakes, blowers, etc.)

    I think most people understand how you can charge a lot more if you're using a big expensive piece of equipment. And after you finally told us that I didn't see anyone accusing you of 'taking people to the cleaners' but certainly you can understand how we may have thought that before we knew about your expensive equipment, can't you?
