So I would have an idea of how much time I was spending doing various different tasks I timed myself (I work solo) this year at different jobs. All of my times were recorded during the same week at all of my jobs. Here are the numbers averaged: Time spent mowing: 20 minutes Time spent trimming: 12 minutes Time spent cleaning up: 2.2 minutes Time spent loading/unloading etc.: 5.8 minutes Total time spent per job: 40 minutes So you don't think that the time spent loading and unloading is excessive remember that there is an etc. at the end. This time also includes things like talking to homeowners, fueling and changing trimmer heads. Now if I were to hire a second man these numbers show me that I would only be able to reduce time spent on a job by the time spent trimming or 30%. Am I correct or am I missing something? What other usefull information can I gather from these numbers? Have any of you ever done this?
