    Down here in Tennessee it is known as "Bush Hawg".
    Charge them by the hour - whatever your hourly charge is.:usflag:

    In my area I was getting $75 per hour. You will need to fine out what your area will support price wise.

    There's another recent thread on this same subject. You can get some more results by "searching" that.

    I charge $75/hr with a $200 minimum.

    Depends on what you're cuttin'. If it's an overgrown field, I wouldn't even want to put my ztr out there. If it's turfgrass, why the bush hog?

    By the way, I almost bought the CK30 but went with New Holland instead. Nice little tractor you have there.:)

    i am not going to do any trimming around the farm until I get a 3 point flail mower that ranges in degrees 60 to -30 then you can mow ditches banks and brush lines.
