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

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
