In my area by myself I could gross about $400-$500/day with that equip. With one employee about $675-$725 minus about $80-$100 for employee. With 2 employees about $775-850. I would think you could have 3 to 4 employees working for you with 3 WB's and plenty of trimming to do. I don't have experience with more than 2 employees so I couldn't answer.
I have the same setup except for the trailer, mines a 12'. I too try to have a 375-550 day when cutting. Its only me doing these so I do ok. If I added more employees I would think about an extra $300 per day, per employee to cover work comp. etc.
"In my area by myself I could gross about $400-$500/day with that equip. "< barkleynut---Barkley, what size yard we talking about? How many yard a day is this? How close are the yards together. How many hour a day?
Charles<-- just trying to figure out how a one man operation could gross this much in one day. Every day without killing themselves.
Charles I will do the math but since you are a liberal I will take it easy on you. (Just Kidding) Just like the question asked for this type of lawn (15K) I charge $50-$60 depending on difficulty and location. 10 per day is fairly easy. Leave the house at 7:30 be at first lawn at 8:00. Each lawn should take about 45 mins maximum. 5 minutes max travel time between lawns. So 10 in an 8 to 9 hour day is very achievable. 10 lawns X $50/$60 per lawn = $500-$600 per day. If you can't get these prices then you need to consider moving on to more profitable lawns.
Nah we can't get 50 or 60$ per .45 minute lawn around here. People in VA must be richer than I thought. 5 min travel time? I know it has to take 5 to 10 minute to load up at least. You can sit at on redlight for 5 min. You must be working until 8 or 9 at night. I quit at 6. Start at 8. You must work on contract and not take time to talk to customers either to get paid. i use a 60" mower and you using a 48"... oh well never mind whatever you say. Homer what you think?
You guys must have turbo charged mowers. I can do as much as $400 plus in a day by myself....but the bods gonna pay and I don't have enough high dollar accounts to keep that up. Realistic is $250-300 solo and $300-500 with a helper. I mow with 62" Stander and 52"Z. The "figure" to figure out is what your expenses are and then what your min. daily work total needs to be.
