i was wondering if you guys could help me out with a 100 acre bid. right now i have around 50 small 30 minute residentials and 5 small businesses. I have a Scag 48 walkbehind and a couple of push mowers. This place will be closing down in 1 - 4 years. This will be a year contract. There is around 50 buildings, numerous parking lots, and some wooded areas that will not be mowed. So it is considerably less than 100 acres but i am to bid it at 100 acres. They want it once a month unless called in early. They want a price just for mowing with no weedeating, blowing, or edging. I know that around building its going to look bad so i was going to give them a few different options in pricing. Such as 1. mowing with weedeating, 2. mowing , edging, blowing, 3. mowing and blowing, 4. just mowing. I plan on getting a 72" Scag turf tiger for 10,800 and a 61" Turf Tiger for 8900 or 61"Scag wildcat for 7900. I got a sheet from my dealer and it says in 8 hours at 80% productivity a 61" deck can do 20 acres at 5 mph and a 72 can do 23.5 acres at 5mph. So that is 43.5 acres 2 mowers can get done in 8 hours running at 80% plus my walkbehind. So i am thinking 3 days max it should all get mowed. I am thinking of doing 55 dollars an acre for just mowing but how much for edging, blowing and weedeating which could double the manpower at the same amount of hours. So does all this sound about right?
