    I wanted to know what you guys generally try to mark up work. Example I can hire plow trucks for $45-50/hr would like to bill out at $100/hr or $ 1500-2000/season. Is this to much, I bid alot this fall with poor return on new work. What is min mark up I should strive for? Thanks for your help.
    BTW were having a great season anyway, looking to be our best yet, may even exceed lawn revenue. Good luck to all of you, keep hoping for more snow.

    I generally get $50.00 - $100.00 per hour more than what I am paying my subs, so $50.00 - $55.00 doesn't sound like too much to me.
