    I got a call to do a 3 arce property with a fair amount of hilly area.
    They want a price for weekly service. What would you charge?

    O N E - D O L L A R !!!!!

    Need more info.

    How long will it take you.

    Figure at least $60/hr

    That should get you close.

    Don't forget the pucker factor. :eek:

    Give us some more info including dimensions, degrees of the slopes, how open the areas are and pictures if possible.

    Well it depend on what crew does it. If its the one with the lazer 72" it'll take about an hour MAX! But that crew is usalyy busy with 5 arc and up. It may have to be done with the 52" lazer hp or even 2 walkbehinds. I really need to see where it fits into my route. It has one hill by the street that MUST be done with a walkbehind.

    I wouldn't touch it for under $175 unless it was really worth it to me...like it was real easy, right on the way to another job, I got other work out of it too like aerating or fertilizing, etc.

    Why are you asking us what to charge for three acres when you have a crew busy cutting 5+ acres lots.:confused: On a sight unseen I'm guessing somewhere around $80.00 to $215.00

    I know exactly what i charge. For a 3 acre lot the base pirce is $101 then i add on for difficulty(hills, trimming, drainage). The hill might add another 15-20 per cut. I just wanted to see how everyone else does it.

    I'd do it anywhere between $150 - $200.
