    My uncle belongs to an airplane club and just asked me if they were getting a good deal with the company they have mowing there airplane field. The runway is 360 feet long by about 75 feet wide and we also have the pit area that is about 200 x 100 with a couple of obstacles.

    They are currently paying about $700 for a season and that includes rolling
    the field once in the spring and getting rid of the dandelions in the
    summer.

    what do you guys think? I think that is a pretty good price. What would you estimate it as?

    Thanks in advance

    Hell yes that's a deal. Are you sure these are the right numbers?

    I get $800/year for properties 100X100 - just mowing it.

    you dont want him to get you that account...... you will have to check out the guy who does it and see what you think....wow some prices are unbelievably low

    at 27 weeks, thats less then 26 per cut, and not even counting the fert:dizzy:
