What did you guys gross per hour this year (esitmate if you have no idea)
Mowing was my most lucrative activity....grossed a bit over $60 per hour.
Same here. I tried bagging all last year and I could barely scape $60/hr. This year I side discharged as much as possible and probably came out at $85-$120/hour. (Sorry, I know that's a big margin.)
If bagging, always add a surcharge. Even if its like $2.50, it really beats the hit your earnings take (clearly stated above).
If I grossed 30-40, if I add all the expenses and hours I put in invoicing billing banking learning estimating advertising ect, I would be making, less than $1.50 per hour, hope you guys are doing better.
i gross $35-$40 solo and $60-$70 with a good helper. needless to say i use a helper.
helper really cuts doen the time. I think next year with all the route tightening I'll do 80/hr solo.
I try to run a gross as best I can between $75 and $100 / hour.
How the heck is that happening? Is your helper faster than you?
Average over the whole year, $50-70. Mowing only, over the whole season, closer to $80. This is with two of us working together.
