    HELP!!!

    I have the opportunity to bid on 2 flat acres in Southeastern,
    PA. and I really have no clue as to what to charge the owner.My
    lots are usually 1/4 acre. I have two Bunton 48" mowers with
    two wheeled sulkies on both. Can I cut 2 acres in 2 hours????

    HELP!!!

    Any input from someone local would be a blessing.

    LET THE GREEN BEGIN-------------------------------------------

    Thanks

    With 2 machines you should be able to get it mowed in 45 minutes.

    With using a 48" you should be able to cut the two acres
    in rite around one hour with the mower speed at just around
    5mph.

    Hope this helps in you landing the job. Good luck.

    I can mow a 2 acre lawn in about 30 minutes with my Dixie Chopper....I'd charge $60, thus $120 an hr
