    16.5 acres, late 1800's thru present. How much per acre just for mowing and trash pick up. the city has to guys that will do the trimming. I know my costs but would like to hear some opinons. We will be using 1 60 in. dixie chopper, 1 36 in. proline, 1 48 in. proline. there will be me and two workers. Minimal trees. and probably about 3 acres that are wide open with no graves.

    I mow a cemetery of approx same size but all on a hill. I would figure it would take you anywhere from 6 to 7 hours to mow. I have my guys run the walk behinds close to the stones and zip through the middles with the z-turn. Seems to work out the best for us.

    Ok so at your $50 an hour does that cost you to run the machines and hire somebody else to help you out. If it does then your price would be around between $400 and $500 a cut.

    $40.00 per acre is $660 per mow. I think $40 per acre is low.
