As for pricing, include a weeks rental rate in case something happens. Then a charge per day since you're new. It doesn't look like too much hardwood or trees.

Figure out how much you want to make and there's you're answer lol.

It's hard to give you exact pricing not knowing your area or seeing the property. I'm usually around 1500+/- for an acre with a lot of treea

I'll second whiffyspark on the pricing. If you want the place to look good after mulching in that kind of heavy vegetation I would expect to take 8-12 hrs per acre to mow it.

And unless you're a really good mechanic or have one on standby, I would be real hesitant to buy a used mulching machine. That T300 looks a bit rough...

It will be slow going along the fence line to get close as possible. I was figuring around $1200-1500//acre or so. Some trash to clean up from illegal dumping. Really want to do an impressive job, to maybe secure more work with this developer. At $1350/acre comes in at around $7500 for the job.

The T300 has only ran the mulcher about 5times. The mulcher has sat outside its while life. The only reason the mulcher on the machine in that pic was to move it from the back of his shop. Ive put around 40/hrs on the T300 doing dirt work. It looks weathered from always sitting outside. Lol

I would think that if you could get the full 62 acres that you could buy that machine easily. Or do the first portion on rental and then rent a larger dedicated mulcher for the rest if you can do it all at once.
