    Guys i was just asked to bid field mowing a 50 acre field.... problem is is that I have never bid a property this size. The property owners just want the grass knocked down and left... any recommendations for pricing? I have all the equipment needed to complete this job, I just have no idea on what a fair price would be. Any thoughts would be great

    Its a field w grass that is a foot and a half in most areas and in a very few it is 5'.
     

  10. was just curious, I would either brushog it, I charge by the acre or I have before on large acres got someone to come in and cut it for hay.
