    How many of you guys run 2 men crews and on a average residential yard 7500-10000 sq, how many is expected in a 8 hr day to get cut.

    I run 2 man crews on residentals. As far as how many in a 8 hr. day, it depends on lots of things, like how far apart are they, how far from the shop is the first and last one. My customer coverage area is pretty big so I usually schedule 8 to 12 yards a day for a crew. We have done as many as 16 in a day.

    As previously mentioned, it really depends on the size of the properties. With a helper and a tight route I've been able to knock out as many as 16 in a day. My best day running solo was 14, but by the end of the day I didn't know if I was comming or going.

    considering 10,000 sq. is only 100x100, and too small for us if that is your max average, if you can't knock off 25 a day your whistling dixie.

    I have been solo for 7 yrs now and I have been mowing between 13 and 15 a day by myself. This year I am hiring someone to work with me and it just wont be worth it if I cant get at least 20 a day done.

    With the right equipment you should be able to do at least 20 lawns per days.

    due to different sizes of lawns, maybe a better question would be how much do your 2 man crews gross in an 8 hr day? I run 2-2man crews and they make around $500 to $600 in 8 hrs. Alot of the time they are out 9-10 hrs and then they do around $600 to $750. Thats what we do. Some make more some make less.....
