Pass on conifer hedge reductions, customers always leave them as long as possible to try save money, they are usually wider than they are tall, topped that many times dead as hell in the middle with nawt to stand on & if the travellers have being in them last you can double the amount of brash to come away as they stuff it down the tops. I refuse them straight away now... Folk asking for an hourly rate are normally the ones you're best not working for as they want a shit ton of work out of you and your machinery and won't pay anything for it! 

£15 an hour is stupid cheap, we get £60 per hour for a 2 man team grass cutting.
