    I have a bid question for SID work, the areas range from .5 of a acre to 20 acres. I am trying to bid these out but am lost as to what the going rate is for this type of work. Is 50-60 a acre too much or too less? What does everyone try to get per acre? Thanks alot

    60 per hour? How do you rate the job per hour if all u know is how many acres it is?

    With a 72" mower you should knock an acre out very quick
