The owner does have a grounds keeper but he been having problems with him

Specs
40 acres of Lawn turf
2.5 miles vinyl fence counting both sides
1 mile around the 12 acre lake
535 other items to trim around

What would you charge for this??? I know everybody's market price would be different Be cool to see the price range

If I win this This would be my 3rd big lawn I take care of Right now I do a 85 acre and a 25 acre lawn
If I win this bid I think its time buy a ride on 16' batwing like a Toro Ac cab

I Live Near Springfield, Missouri & If I Were To Do That I'd Charge Probably Around $1900 - $2400 Depending On How Tall It Is On The First Time. Is Any Of It Wooded Area?

Im assuming it's not all rocky and weird.

If you have an S-ton of those dixie choppers why not just have 3-4 of them go to this one site?

the thing with getting a bat wing is, what if the guy up and cancels on you?

you can always use a 60 or 72" ztr… but the batwing mowers? it's only real big stuff.
Id want a multi year contract before i bought specialty equipment.

Edit: ok now I can see all those little dang trees.

its well into the "impossible to estimate" without looking at it in person category.

It's at least $1400 plus
Your not far off on price

on the Batwing I have one its a pull type 15' But I rather have a ride on type
I can use it on few other jobs I have a Toro 585 (I think right number I forgot ) runs cuts at 12 MPH The guy from county club said if its smooth and short can run little faster With it you can one deck or 2 decks or all 3
If I get this I wont buy until the renew of my School contact 2016 unless I can find a good deal on used one
I have 3 72'' and 2 60'' I can run on it and its only take about half a day to cut the lawn The trimming is going be the killer part

I mow 25 acre Factory Lawn For this guy and he really like how the lawn looks and He did say he like his lawn look like the factory lawn

Dude, I Wanna See Pic's If You Win The Bid On The Yard & Mow It. 2" Is Pretty Low For Such A Large Area To Mow. Good Luck With The Trimming. I LOVE Trimming But That Is A Hell Of A Job To Do. Good Luck!

I think your right about price. Those little trees would have to be mulched to protect them and make them manageable. I would limestone along the fence and spray, it would look just as nice as a good mow and trim along it. It gets covered with grass so easily and then what? Wait for a rain? Or I would be at the 2400 ish mark to do this work. Hard from a picture I know. You are going to have to slow down to get a nice clean cut for these folks there. This don't look like typical commercial property where nobody goes in the "back forty". Know what I mean? These are going to be picky folks.

OP-That is a nice property man, grats to you.
