    it all depends on what you are doing. the higher the risk the more money you have to get is how i see it. tree work i get 1000 per day 2 or 3 guys truck chipper. for cutting grass i try to get about 75 per hour for 2 guys. um side work i get 25 per man hour plus materials. excavation is 500 per day minimum for a guy plus machine. these are all rough numbers and vary by economic regions as well as costs and other variables.

    My hourly rate formula:

    Acres+sq feet X 60 minutes (divided by drive time) - costs of gas- cost of oil-depreciation and acrual of interest charges offset by one time lump sum acquisition + 3% = hourly rate

    We get $120/hour for 2 suburb'n turb'ns and a flatlander. That's just about all the market will bear in our area, but it did bring in over $12,000 last month with nothing but mowing, and hardly ever over 30 hours per week............Lynn
