Probably should of just used 6 goats.

Normal mowing of this yard is just under one hour.

If there is "normal mowing" of this yard, how did it get to look like it did?

Owner sells property, rent to own. Buyers/Renters don't mow.

with your equipment it sounds about right, I might have added on $100 for the possibility of unforeseen hazards that might break your mower, I was thinking 350 - 375 when I saw your big rider.
With my tt36s it would be about $550 including dumping.

hourly + dumping is perfectly fair, but it does scare people for that reason.
but it makes it hard to bid when you think something might take 6 hours, or it may take 10 hours when you're trying to pay employees and cover costs.

We think very much alike

Yeah, I think the 3 heads laughing is a little creepy too, now that I see them.
