    I'm going to sub out about 25 acres of brushhogging and one acre of finish mowing. Brushhogging and curb trimming once a month and the finish mowing twice a month. I was thinking of keeping 40% but was wondering if that would be fair. I got the job because of my reputation and I will be responsible for billing and so forth. And yes my sub is insured. Thanks

    I have subed out work in the past and tacked on 20-30% above the subs price for my profit. I believe this is a fair and profitable way to do it.

    Thanks Stan. After some more calculating I came up with 30%. Thanks.
