    if flat 100, mostly flat 125, if hilly i would have to see it to give you a estimate.

  3. Weekly cut $75 to $80. That would be considered top money in my neck of the woods. But then again the average income for a working stiff is only $17.000 per year in my area with most people on some type of transfer payment.

    well, i have one account that is 1.27 acres and it brings $70 per cut, so i'd have to say about $140 for your 2.5.

    I charge $65 per cut sight unseen. After I have been out to look at the property, I will adjust price if need be.

    I usually charge $60.00 per acre. Thats what I start with. Since theres 2 acres adjoining each other, I would consider a discount. Like maybe the whole thing for the price of 2 acres. ($120.00)Unless there is excessive trimming or any extras. I honestly don't know how some of you guys make it just charging only 65 for 2 acres?:confused:
    Hope this helps anyway.:blob2:
