Okay. This place is sprawling. I measured it at about 3 acres. Lots & lots of trees, mostly evergreens, to mow through & around that cover at least half the area. Some slopes that require a walkbehind. The owner says that they will do the trimming themselves (but I'll probably trim around the house area myself)
I have access from a farmer friend that has a 60" Gravely that I can rent whenever I need it.
So my question is, "How much time would this take to cut? And what rates are you guys using for this size machine?" I will apply my own rates to the time.
Thanks for your help guys.

Those are 2 questions that really only you can answer.

If I was cutting 3 acres with a ton of trees Id be charging around $350-400.00 a cut.

Im sure that doesnt help much.
