wait a minute, a solo man would need to gross $1000 to net $500? that's propostorous. mr solo should not have more than $135 a day in total operating costs and overhead, and income tax, unless he can't control his overheadProLawns said:With one helper i'm personally netting $40 per hour including driving time, that's $320 for an eight hour day. Our gross is $76 per hour. We're working between 32 and 40 hours per week mostly mowing. That's all I can handle in this heat. There's no way a solo op. can consistently net $500 a day. You would have to gross close to a thousand to net that much. When I say net I mean after everything, all expenses and income tax.
I'd love to learn the details of your new system. Do tell Bobby.bobbygedd said:solo, it's tough. but if you're ambitious, you should easily clear $300 solo. of course, till you fall apart from being solo. but, with an employee, it should be very easy to clear 5 bills a day, working no more than 8-9 hrs. anyone wanna hear my new system? especially since i think ric blabbed anyhow
