picked this demo up today as well as this yard the guy who used to mow it was a lowballer and mowed it for like 40 bucks and never came this year so it was never mowed. i quoted her for 75 and will be doing it weekly. i was real impressed with the scag it mowes great.

That machine had the 26hp l/c on it right? How did the engine respond with the grass that tall? How big of a cut??

$75 seems low for that big place, $120 looks like it would be my choice-

$75 seems like the perfect price to me, I'm in CT and have similar lawns to that size in my area. Also do you think the woman would go for a 300% price increase????

lol yeah diffrent prices in diffrent areas, in my area of CT this is the going rate. if anything i charger higher then most in my area.

also now that its all knocked down it will only take the 2 of us like 25 minuts to do from start to finish so im more then happy with 75.

Also note there really isnt a back yard in this place its all front yard so what you see if what we will be mowing.

i believe it did yes. the blade speed never slowed it was constant no matter how high the grass was but the mower its self struggled big time to climb the hills. this was with blades on or off it just didnt have the power to mustle it up the steeper hills. my exmark has so much power it will almost flip backwards climbing hills.

I cut it starting at like 5inches i believe then every cut after i lowered the height till i got to 3.5 i believe.

That's a turf tiger so it may have had the 27 or 29dfi kawi on it (assuming it's liquid cooled).

I only have a few things i dislike over the scag one being the nut and bolt design for the blades, Seems alittle complicated when you have used exmarks for years. and im not sure i like the driveshaft system over the belt

No, but neither should she expect to get away with not having done this year until you show up without having to pay a little more the first time around !!
