We all have some customers on our routes that we'd love to duplicate; I.E. the gravy ones.<br>What's your easiest money on your route? For me, it's a small biz that I weedeat, mow & blow & load back up in 12 min. Sounds like along time but on the site it's cruisin'. I can do the whole package by myself in 12 min. & it's a $25 job. What about you guys?<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>

I have a 70 x 70 lot, level, with a 900 sqft house and a drive way thats 4 min to mow and 6 min to weedeat. 20.00. <br>And 2 houses next to each other 35 min total 40.00. I dont think is too bad. I wish I had the whole neighborhood!

Naturallawn. You drive to and from and unload and load your equipment for 20$. Thats not good at all. Man you need a minimum. Hope you got more than one job at that stop

1 hour 40 mins. = $115 & its within 2 miles from my shop. I have several at about $70/hour. Some residentials for $30 that I can knock out in 15 mins. or less...but you have to drive there and unload.
