    no less than 90 an acre in those conditions, judge it my time and wear, might take 2 hours to do 1 acre, so thats 120 an acre.

    I usually dont because down here in florida there isnt one inch of un-inhabited land. But make sure you charge enough to get the job done. 24'' is alot of stress on your mower.

    Hey, you need a near new J.D 997 with rear discharge deck for that work, just happens I know where you can buy one! LOL!

    Fantastic company support etc LOL.

    I cut a horse pasture over the weekend.............
    Cost............zero.
    Watching the tri blade manure spreader in action..........priceless!


    That probably didn't help you much, but.............:waving:



    See Tony, a rear discharge deck wouldn't have been near as much fun!


    Seriously, it depends what you're cutting it with and that should be cut with a brush hog.

    don't know how you can make a living charging 18.50 an acre, like why bother doing the job even?

    we aren't talking hundreds of acres with big hp tractrs and wide cutters are we? even then, is the job really prifitable?
