There would be no way I'd even take a job like that. Who knows what surprizes I would find in there. For all I know I could find the body of a missing person in that field. I'd rather not take my chances and just pass on the job.

If you do happen to hit something, it could easily do more damage than what you'd be getting paid.

If I had to price it, I'd go $600 for it to look okay when I'm done.

I wouldnt have touched that with any of my mowers. The few hundred you would make will cost you in the long run with repairs.

I do these all day long with my 60 inch toro, I cut grass this high with the occasional patch of 6ft johnson grass. my pricing would be:
-Side discharge only, lol of coarse-
50 per acre 1 pass-rough cut-ugly but cut, will satisfy code enforcement -1hr 15min
115 per acre 2-3 passes-decent cut -2hrs 30 min
150 per acre 4-5 passes-somewhat manicured cut -3hrs 30 min

Most people opt for the cheapest in my experience.
