    I could use a little wisdom from the Pros.I'm bidding a lot bigger job than I normally do.My question is are there any formulas to figure edgeing by feet.Ican wheel it off but still am quessing time.Also the mowing is going to require a bigger mower than I have,which I'll get.Just not sure how much time the Lazer Z(60") will take being its so much faster than my old Toro.I'm looking at maybe 8 Acres with trees,Half to be clippings picked up Tks.

    Unless this is a one-time job and you're renting the mower, I would not recommend buying a machine for just this one contract.

    For the most part, if you know how much it takes to do 1 acre, then an estimate for 8 acres should just be a matter of multiplying.
