    This was a one time job I did back in June..

    How many times over do you think was necessary to leave no clippings? How long do you think it took? How much would you charge?

    I will give my numbers later....

    Best I can do is guess. 3-4 cuts to disperse clippings. 2-3 hours. $300.

    Was it 3 acres of grass or 3 acres of grass and trees? Make a difference in the price.

    I would of harvested those 3 acres and charges for the mow. 380 for the cut and i'll have some hay to sell after it cures for the winter.

    When I finished I actually told the guy he probably could have gotten some farmer to cut and harvest for little to no $$

    How many times did you have to go over it to leave a good cut? Not including the dispersing of clipping
