This may be a stupid question, but at what speed can you mow (on average) with that machine???
Also, how often are they to be cut?..... any trimming?? obstacles?? (will anything such as a bridge or gate keep your particular machine from any areas to be mowed?)

OK Lets say your tractor goes 4mph (conservative). You'll need to make 4 passes. 4 passes equals 4 hours. Do you know what your per/hr rate is?? I wouldn't touch this for less than $200/cut. Good luck!!

No trim. There is a fence on one side far just about a half a mile but just cut as close as in can not trim. I say 90% is just strait out cutting.It far a horse trail.
