    Let me know how it works for you.

    Things I could probably add.

    - how many weeks a year the business works (Added)
    - how many hours a week on average. (Added)
    - Also maybe a spot for a third employee.
    - Ability to account for multiple trimmers, blowers and mowers.
    - Maybe be able to enter minutes in job estimate instead of hours.
    - Maybe I could have the figures saved on your computer as a cookie to allow for faster future estimates with new jobs.
    - Also I could explain how the figure is calculated to allow it to be reviewed.
    - How about a tree stump estimate calculator.
    - email a friend link to try this calculator
    - add a way to calculate leaves, gutter cleaning and snow removal
    - 12/13/08 changed the setting from how long the job will take from hours to minutes.
    - 12/13/08 added a mower estimating calculation form.
    - 12/13/08 changed monthly fuel to weekly to make it easier to remember.

          A lot of forum members wanted a copy of the mow time estimator to use on their computer in the field so I put together a downloadable version of the mow time estimator. If you would like a copy of it, I'll email it to you after purchase.

          "Take the guesstimate out of your estimate" with the GopherHaul Estimator.

          through paypal

            Steve this is great. Maybe you could find a way so that we could use this on the jobsite. Make our estimates more accurate

              Thanks TNT.

              I was wondering, when you create a bid for your snowplowing and salting do you include a markup % on the salt or do you just go with the profit mark up at the end of the bid for the company?

                    Hi KWLAWN,

                    Do you have a laptop with you in the field that has internet access? That would be the best way now to use these calculators.

                        No, they are run through a program on the server. Which did you like the most?

                          calculators

                          thanks for the reply, i do like all of them and have used them already for the snow. i live in kansas city,mo i just started my lawncare back in august and come this spring i will use the other calculators, they are great to use thanks.
                          but i do not have a laptop to use online in the field. and when your with a customer they like for you to give them the price right there. it would be cool to pull the laptop out on the truck and use the calculators right there and give them your estimate.

                          Again thanks KWLAWN

                              I can probably make it small so you could log into it on your cell phone.
