Anyone bag 10+ acres ever?

POSSIBLY Bidding on a job this week which is over 11 acres of actual cutting

The property manager says BAGGlNG is a MUST!

I was wondering how many guys on here have actually bagged a property this size before?

You bag 10+ acres at one property?
How many walkers do you run and what size deck?
How many cubic yds of clippings do you usually remove each week from that?

Depends on the property

Either 3-4 walker's or 3 walkers and a 997

Between 5-15 cy's depending on grass type and growth.

This is a strange bid.... One season of grass cutting only, the Requirements are pretty low for insurance at only 500k and also no mention of snow removal in this bid at all.

Most bids min of 1/2M insurance required
Term 2-3 Years with option for additional year
Lawn and snow bid together
