    We have an oppritunity to bid 2 cemetaries.
    Both very large, around 40arc. Would like to run a crew of
    5 w/ 2 60" Super Z's and 3 trimmers.
    What they want is service every 10 days.
    1st service both mow and trim next service just mow next mow
    and trim and so on.
    Can anyone give some help on man power, time and price?
    Thanks!

    I have an old section that is about 4.5 acres that dates from 1830-present, and because of the jumbled up rows in the older section it takes about 4 to 4.5 hours with one 60" ztr depending on the amount of rain and growth. Make sure you think of everything and check out everything ahead of time to make sure you are not setting yourself up for failure before you accept the job. Good luck.
