    Can you guys give me some help on coming up with a ballpark price to cut this property? I ever had to give a price on a property this large.

    7.8 Acres to be cut
    all flat
    1350 feet of edging
    1 hour Trimming
    10 large trees


    Will be using a 61" Z Scag


    Thanks

    get a ballpark figure on how many hours you'll be there. I figure you need to charge 85.00 an hour to be profitable.

    Just Bid On A 5 Acre Commercail Account Here. Bid $200 To Mow And Trim, Figured About 2 1/2 Mowing And Trim Time, May Be A Bit High. Shouldnt Really Be A Lot Of Trim, Going To Spray Fence Lines And Around The Building.

    Come on 7.8 acres $600 what will that take to do by yourself 3 hrs. Is it a commercial property what is it. Iam assuming it is wide open with no obstacles since you said only 10 trees.
