    I normally charge $30-$40 normal lot (consider same as mine 100x150)..But was asked a quote on one 100' across front-300' deep-300' across back. Large house with double drive. This quote is just a ball-park as I need to go look- I quoted $80-$90. Just mowing/trim..no bagging. Hoping to use 52" surfer on it- If need to use push mower- I'll turn down. I also have a 60" Lesco & a 36" Scag w/sulky..what one do you think would be best for size given? (assuming each cuts equally the same) - thanks..Geno

    if theyre all fixed deck w/b use the 52". price sounds decent.

    That's about where I would be on a mow, blow and go... if they want edging(depending on how much) you might throw it in you might not... But yeah i think price sounds ok..like you said though if you have to use the pushmower..haha.. no way.

    Dura..The Lesco 60" is a 'floating'deck and has a scag sit-on sulky (green mower with orange sulky-not real impressive color combo) Geno

    id go w/ the 60 if it floats good then. ive never used a lesco so i dont know how well they float, but you should be fine. is the 52" is a floater id use it though. that size range seems to have the best cut IMO.
