Ok!! I have this automotive service down here that wants 1 Lawn service Company to do all of their branches. Well 3 of them are an 1hr 15min away, three are 30min away, the other two are right here in town. All sites are pretty much the same in cutting, trimming & blow. I figured about 2 - 21/2 hrs each place. Two men will be doing this with the below equipment. If you could help me out it would greatly be appreciated. I have no clue how to figure in the traveling and other things that you big dogs do. PLEASE HELP!!!

I figure travel time just like mowing time. The truck's probably depreciating faster than the mowers. So the price is the same.

I don't mow by the hour but when I'm figuring a quote the travel time gets figured as mowing time. The overhead expense is roughly the same plus it's time I could have spent mowing.

Nope, Army. Besides I'm too old. My brother was a Marine but he's old too.:D
My son is your age but he was Army also.

Was the Haggerty you knew a big man?
Some of the family from Hillsboro are just huge. They're more closely related to Dan Haggerty the actor. (Grizzly Adams)
