    Tahnks for replying. What if I had a 48" wb. I know that this is not the owner's problem, but would you price it differently?

    $30 with a 37Wb. Would never use any mower bigger on such a small lawn. It just doesnt look good. IMO.

    yeah i was thinking $30, $65 is to high for that size. An acre only goes for $40 -$50 around here.

    A $20 stop fee + a $1 per thou sq. ft. of lawn.
    $1 x 10.700sf + $20 stop fee = $30.70.
    Or to bag it a $20 stop fee and $2 per thou sq. ft. of lawn.
    $2 x 10.700sf + $20 stop fee = $41.40

    Of course with the right equipment.
