  • What are your "hours"?

    Hey guys, Im just getting done work for the day. I feel like im wasting half the day by finishing at 3 pm. Do you guys work the same hours every day or do you just work until you done for the day what ever time that might be?

          Depends on what we are doing, tomorrow is a big excavation job, we will be on the site 8 to 8 with an excavator, backhoe, loader and two additional staff using brush saws, the client can afford 12 hours so we will stop at 8 or so. It's a very long day, up at 5, bed by 11 if I am lucky.

          Most days are 8 to 6

            How come you start at 8? I never know what a good time to start is.

                Local By-Laws, I would start at 7 if we could and stop earlier in the day, that would be a dream, we do meet at 6:30 to 7 for coffee etc.

                  I find that if I start mowing early, I'm limited on productivity..because the dew on the grass kills my belt drive walk behind...need to look into a hydro unit. Most mornings I try and start the day with equipment maintenance to get me to 9 or so..i find myself hitting snooze though lately and sending my guy a text tellin him to pull weeds and such around my house until I get out

                    Thats intresting I have never herd of that. What is the reasoning behind that bylaw? I usually start at 7: 00 or 7: 30 and go untill im done.

                      Sometimes I sleep in a little... Wake up, hook the trailer up and load it... Go to McDonalds for breakfast... Procrastinate a lot... etc.

                      Each day takes about 6 1/2 hours "8am - 2:30pm". No rush, relax, get the work done and go have a beer or 12 with your workers.

                      I am so drunk right now, and I am writing this like a champ!

                      I can wake up at anytime, so long as the job(s) get done before 5-6pm, I'll be happy.

                        I'd shoot someone if they started a mower outside my house at 7am.


                        May be the reason for previously mentioned law.



                        I forget what the start time around here is - I want to say 8am is OK, but not certain.

                            The noise laws around here are 7 a.m. sometimes I am a rebel and start a 6:55 a.m. I work on Saturdays and Sundays as well

                            To answer the original question, on busy days I work till I can hardly walk. Other days just work till done.

                              when i started i was getting up late started around 11am finish around 4-5pm then i got more accounts so i started at 8am finished around 6-7pm during summer and around 5-6 during winter then i got workers and i get up again late... but they still start around 8am and are done around 4-5pm they dont get overtime so they are pretty good about the timing and clients are good to let me know if they have done half *** job when i visit them, at least once every 2 weeks.
