    I was just wondering what you guys are averaging per hour? I know the rates posted in the past were around $60 per hour , solo i'm assuming. It seems like the price on everything has jumped up this year as far as overhead goes, so what would be a good rate- solo w/ one helper? payup

    How is it solo if you have a helper???? One helper, double the rate. 2 helpers, triple the rate. 4 helpers quadruple the rate. etc, etc, etc... Seems pretty basic to me.

    Good point, I guess I think of it like that since I run the show and do the bulk of the mowing myself. So what is your basic average?
