    How many acres? How much trimming? I mean, if you are moving in with 21" push mowers and it is going to take 2 days @ 9 hrs. per day, it is still worth the same to the customer as if you pull in with 72" mowers and are done in 3 hrs.

    How much you charge will depend on your overhead and the going hourly rate in your area. the industry average in the east is $36 per man hr.

    I personally would be happy with $1,600 to $1,700 for the work. Not sure if thats even realistically close to what you can get though.
