It's not all that often you get a job that pays silly money. Back in January 2004 we did a mulching job on a two acre estate. The job needed 240 yards of mulch. This was a finished property so you could drive trucks and equipment across the place. I figured we'd rent some tracked equipment and budgeted 10-12K to do the job. I had a blower truck company give me a sight unseen bid and it was about $10.5K. I told them to go look at the property and see if they could sweeten the deal. They lowered the bid to $6750. In the meantime we had already submitted our bid to do the job for $18,750. Well, we got the job and sub'd it out for $6750. I made made $12,000 in two days and did none of the actual work. I'm sure other people will chime in with other stories but I think this one will be hard to beat. The only down side of the job was I purchased a 97 F250 with a chunk of the profit. The trans went out and then the 7.3 tanked. We had the truck for about 50K miles and spent 10K on maintenance. Now I invest my money in only Cummins powered trucks and have less problems! Damn Ferds! I now own a 2009 4x4 Dually Ram and a 2006 2500 Ram. The blower truck prices have gone way up so now we mulch the place with 3,200 bags using a T190 to move the pallets around the property. The profit is down to $5k but that not a bad profit four days work with a four man crew.
