I have an apt. complex that I mow that has a 1 acre empty lot that the owner bought so nobody could build on it. I bushhogg it 5 times a year for $235 a cut. Takes longer to get rigged up than to do the job. But easy money.

PS If you need some help, I finally stepped up into the real world of brush hogging\field mowing.
Depends on what your doing and what eq your using. If your cutting a couple ac at $15 an ac, yes a hack but if your mowing many ac using a 15ft batwing at 5 miles an hour=

Anytime, anytime.

You've been sort of quiet lately. Not much plowing to do down there?

As a farm boy, it's hard to beat low prices on bush hogging as you guys call it.

Farmer just know other farmers or even the rural folk with small spreads usually know a farmer or someone with the equipment.

Everyone helps everyone else out, so it's not really a business when you think about it. It's just something that needs to be done.

I've got one client that i do the landscaping for and her husband has tons of equipment lying around. Every time he gets the chance to help someone out, he's on it.

Most farmers don't have a lot to do in the middle of the summer.
