That’s why I think it depends on the job. I ran balewagon for a custom outfit during several export hay harvests. We got paid $8 per load. No matter if we were stacking 7 high truck blocks in the field or roading 10 highs 5 miles...8 bucks a load. It all seemed to average out to about 45 loads a day. Faster we went, more we made and the more the boss made. Greasing was on our time and if we broke it, we were out of a job until parts came in and we fixed it. That kind of scenario works with the right employee. Maybe the OP has that kind of scenario.. I dunno. But downtime between two different tasks is when both boss and employee get uneasy. (Wait around for 2 hours unpaid until the next job starts kinda thing. Or go to town for 2 hours and come back with beer on your breath kinda thing).
