    How much do you guys aim to get per hour with 2 people dethatching?
    I've been pricing around 70-80/hour. I hate doing this though! I'm spending 2 hrs or so on each job we do this at $140-160. I think I could get away with doubble this?? What do you all think?

    When you get into job like this I like to have a minimum price. Because if you don't have some sort of line, you will waste your time. I have a 225.00 Powerseeding minimum, 35.00 Grass Cut minimum, etc. After you add up the fuel, time, ware & Tare on equipment, etc you still have to make money.
