Tahnks for replying. What if I had a 48" wb. I know that this is not the owner's problem, but would you price it differently?

You've been in business for 3 years and this is your first residential bid? I find that truely hard to believe.

What to charge? Well, what are your cost?

I would charge $65 per cut

Well maybe I don't need the work that bad. LOL

$30 with a 37Wb. Would never use any mower bigger on such a small lawn. It just doesnt look good. IMO.

yeah i was thinking $30, $65 is to high for that size. An acre only goes for $40 -$50 around here.

A $20 stop fee + a $1 per thou sq. ft. of lawn.
$1 x 10.700sf + $20 stop fee = $30.70.
Or to bag it a $20 stop fee and $2 per thou sq. ft. of lawn.
$2 x 10.700sf + $20 stop fee = $41.40

Of course with the right equipment.
