    I do a lawn which takes three hours to do and it is roughly 12,000-13000 sq ft but the owner lets me use his deere and cyclone rake to pick the clippings up im curious how much i should charge right now i charge 60 a cut but i think i could go higher and no one else probablyu would want to cut this piece of property

    I would charge 35 an hour since you are using his machines if you are using yours charge 45. That is what i would charge.

    3 hours for 12-13000 sq ft?!!! What size deck is on the deere? Is there a ton of trimming involved?

    around a 40 or 48 but its hilly and its not square many obstacles its a pain and lots of grass to empty it take like 3 times to empty and that adds up to .5 hr
