Hi everyone, i'm new here. but my newest venture is brush mowing. i bid a job last year that included a large retaining pond. i gave a price and got the bid. i bought a 4' brush mower, and let my brother , who has a tractor do the mowing, and i pay him accordingly. well that price is set, each and every time. the problem is that my brother decided he can mow empty lots for people, and he charges around $50 an hour, if not more, and he thinks i should only get $15/hr, because i only own the mower. so no matter what he decides to charge he only tells me the hours he used it. what would you charge, or what do some of you charge for a similar job, whether you just own the equipment like me, or do the work yourself? the price of $15/hr was taken from a local rental store on the same mower. so the mowing season is almost here and i'm not happy with that price, but i don't know what it should be. thanks for any, and all help, i think i'll enjoy this site.
