http://media.tested.com/uploads/0/83...n_256_tiny.pngAnd they are available as an Android App.

<h1> Scroll down for more calculators.</h1>

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.

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

Steve 12-20-2008 04:14 AM

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?

TnT Outdoor ervices 12-20-2008 09:52 AM

I charge around $2-$4 per lb of salt

Estimating Calculator
 
Would like to know how i could copy these calculators and use them in the feild. been trying all day to copy but can not. I like the calculators.


thanks KWLAWN

Steve 12-22-2008 12:33 AM

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.
