    Gotta charge by the man hour in my opinion. 6 acres flat smooth no trimming I'd say $150-$200.

    $100 for 6 acres?

    Like the previous posts I'm in the $200 per cut range.

    This is bad. That's at least a 200 lawn... I'd push for 300.
    This is why we can't get prices we need to really make money.
    Because people price a 6 acre lawn at 100. Well how the hell can I charge 40 for a small lawn? Everyone needs to raise prices.

    Way too much wear and tear for 100. I think 175 to 200 is a good starting point. That would have to be flat, smooth, and very little obstacles.

    What you use and I use to cut grass is to different things 100 is just mowing now to trim it and other thing would be higher but just to mow 6 acres 100 isn't bad

    Less then a hour and make 100 that's good money with a lawn mower

    6 acres in my area is a med size lawn

    But he said it took 2.5 hours. Plus, he lost the account. Dare we guess someone under cut the $100 price
