    After reading some of the threads here i think I'm underbidding one of my jobs. How much would you charge for doing a ponderosa pine needle cleanup that takes 9.5 man hours? I use rakes because I haven't found any other effective way of getting the pine needles off the ground. If any one has any suggestions on a quicker way to pick up the pine needles and the price for the job your help would be greatly appreciated!

    9.5 x 60 =$579
    $150/load if hauled off of property.

    Funny how some people get paid to pick up needles and others get paid to put them down

    You could use a Pitch Fork if the needles on the ground are very thick.
