    Need help with single man opp for leaf clean up. I have a leaf vac, back packs, little wonder blowers,and a dump bed with 4 ft sides. This is the only trouble I have charging for. I am interested in knowing hourly rates for single man opps.

    My min leaf removable is 70.00. I usually charge 37.00 an hour with a 20 dollar stop charge and I usually round up. Tell me what you guys think? AM I way under or am I in the ball park?:usflag:

    im about 10 minutes up the road from you i would say your prices are about right for this area. my min. is $100 but it took me a few years to get up to that.

    How do you like your red hawk mower?

    you should be charging extra to haul them on top of your hourly rate. $70ish an hour with all that equip is about right assuming your efficent. your truck "load" is small but you should get $50ish a load too, maybe a less depending on much it holds. then charge a normal mowing fee if you perform those services as well.

    i bought it from a guy that went out of biz its basicly just a backup/parts mower. only used it about 10-15 times in 2 years but its cuts just as nice as the toro does just a little harder to use.
