What kind of accounts are you mowing? I had intentions of getting to that stage of needing a machine like that-I'm envious. How much do they run for now? From what I hear, it depends on what your bidding on. If it's government work, most seem to be charging by the acre. I've heard of prices as low as $25-$30/acre. These prices are for a lot of acreage. Government projects are very competitive and the lowest bidder gets the job. I think it amounts to you having the machine for the job, which you do. It also amounts to you being able to do a large area in a lot less time than someone with less superior equip. The less time on a job, the more money you just made+the less laborers you have versus having three mowers and three amigos. If you do it in half the time, you just made twice the money and you move on to a new job and make more money. I'd charge by the job on most and do it quicker. Just my $.02 worth.
