    There is a big company here that cuts for $18.50, they mow almost the entire subdivision, would I do 50% of a subdivision at $18.50 a cut? I Sure would as im sure there 3 man crew mows about 15 houses per hour.

    Well when he/she calls Im going to ask if the company is insured and licensed. I also going to ask for a reference list of his current and past customers. In addition I have a 3 acre property that needs to be cut, Asap!

    heck ya, just sub him out on all your 1 acre+ yards where you make 50-80 and pay him 15. Sounds like a good deal, and your customers yards could look like the ones in the picture.
