    My ? is this, what are you guys paying your subs if you don't mind me asking and do you pay the same or more for bigger blades/ V's bc in my area the prices are all over the board Thanks

    my subs get $70 per hour (all 8' str. blades) and I require him to carry my gps route calculater to supervise that hes movin and not sittin at burgerking drinking coffee. Most make between $35-$200per hour just depends on the situation. The wider the blade the high the pay since its quicker with a 10' blade, but so is common sense.
    I personally dont pay more for bigger blades but bigger brains.
