    How much would someone charge to mow 550,000 SQFt once a week mowed trimmed and blowed. It take about about 12 to 13 hours to mow with a 2 man crew.

    Ive perviously mowed this before with one guy mowing and one guy trimming it took a day and a half to complete.

    what would be a a resonable estimate to give.
  2. ah how about $240.38.

    Im sorry but 240.38 sounds extremely cheap for a day and a half of work with 2 people. That covers your cost for paying your workers and thats about it you have all your gas to get you there and in your mowers and so on but my personal .02 is that 240.38 sound really cheap....

    You said you had mowed it before and know how long it takes. You should have a feel for how much fuel and supplies you use on it. Just charge your hourly rate! Should be a pretty easy bid imo
