My thought exactly ... however, $ 150 seems a little high for my area for 2 acres of turf ... that would go for about $ 115 here !!

Most customers with lots like this will not even want to go over a $100 if you show up with a knife to a gun fight. I'm not ragging on you just trying to help out. the guarantee I'm talking about is if there is extra rain, that can make a job like this turn into a nightmare with a underpowered machine. That is one reason I went with the bigblock turftiger for encountering situations like this on big accounts. lol
you get that for an acre and a half in Jarhead land? OMG I am packing and moving back to Lejeune

Same here. It might take me around 2-3 hours , probably 2.5. I would say there is about 1.5 acres there, but it looks like quite a bit of trimming.
