    If its a mow trim and blow on flat land and basic trim work i'd easily get $150.00.

    3 acres with a 48" WB? Good luck. My minimum for that size job would be $135.

    Our area is low when it comes to pricing. I can agree with about $75.00 on that job. Might get a bit more, but not around here. You can't charge the customer more because you don't have the right equipment.

    You would be happy to see $100.00 weekly for a 3 acre lot in my area, unless theres 10,000' of trimming. lol

    First you have to figure out how long that 48" is going to take you to mow it, I'm guessing 2.5-3.0hrs with trimming and whatever else. I would like to hear some other thoughts on how long it would take for a 48" to mow that. Around here that would be at least 150.00.

    It's been a while since I cut 3 acres with a 50" and velke. If I remember correctly.. it took roughly 2.5 hours.

    TNT... Where in Maryland are you located? I wish I could say that I can easily ask $150 for 3 acres.
