He may throw his hammer at ya if ya offer $25 bucks! Wages have gone up a bit, like to be fair, figure at least 50/hr. Maybe more for a small PITA job that screws up the dude's day. Figure travel time too, since it's so quick a job.
If that was the case for $50 I'd throw my hammer at him and do it myself. A on the side farm gate installation that's worth $50. I was being very generous at an hrs work. Not like it takes a journeyman, any farm kid with a drill, hammer and a couple of wrenches can do the job, ain't rocket science.
Well he had to remove old fence and old gates, had to remove a pile of dirt and crap I forgot about, he and his kid and wife helped as it was aan industrial size and weight gate with a large wheel on it, when I first picked it up to. Ring home it was almost too much for two of us to get to my trailer, he also fabricated the hardware to make it work,
Used all his own tools and stuff,
Ended up we paid him 200 bucks, which surprised him but wife was happy as right now I am unable to see well or even try to do much
