9 acres total

May - Cut and trim all 9 acres every week.
June to October - Cut and trim about 5-6 acres every other week and all 9 acres on alternate weeks.

Charge at least 75.00 per acre.

May- 9x75= 675

You can figure the rest out.

If you charge $75 an acre here you can kiss that job goodbye. I would bid $500.00 to cut each week and $375.00 on the weeks that you only have to do part. If you have the right equipment it shouldn't take too long.

I would have to agree with these prices.

That sounds about right to me too! Trying to charge more would be nice but only do it if your area will support the rate!

I bid $375 on 7.5 acres Mostly flat with one large hill that i would have to use a w/b. Wanted it done every 10 days.. Never heard from them. Too High?

^ I would say that is about right $350-$375. Probably got beat by a lowballer though.

I went $7500 for the year and got it no questions asked. The best part is it's right next door!:dancing:

We get around $95.00-$100.00 per acer from our farmers. We would use tractors on that size, knock out 9 acers in about 4hrs.
