Need Advice to bid a 25-30 acre soccer field complex

I currently have 70+/- commercial/residential maintenance properties.
So I have a great understanding when it comes to bid those type properties.

I have the opportunity to bid on this soccer complex with the inside track (friend of friend) to secure this property.

I am looking for advice from anyone that does this type of property.

Fields to be mowed weekly all year (with exception of May and June- biweekly)

No trash to pick up

Weedeat around bleachers/ goals, etc., (no sidewalks to edge)


Basically, I plan on figuring Price per visit x # of visit = total cost/12 for monthly billing.

What type of equipment is best suited for this? I would assume tractor w/ finishing mower

What type of rates go with this type of property?

Any other input would be appreciated!
This is the type of property that could me support purchasing a tractor and new truck, both of which I need regardless. So I am super pumped to have this opportunity. Thanks in advance!!

There are lots of nice BIG lawn mowers that would handle the job better and in the long run be cheaper.
