    So does your spreadsheet factor in the length of grass and spit out the price? And how does it spit out a price without having some sort of time factored in?

    im not under estimating anything,i dont like to abuse the crap out of my equipment to make a few bucks:rolleyes:. and the deck belt that runs the blades is close to a hundred dollar belt not $50 i just bought one last week.

    and no a belt woulden't be my only concern, stumps, rocks,random crap in the tall grass would be my concern.

    I read your earlier post... earlier!

    So, your spreadsheet gives you a $600 price to cut 3 acres.. regardless of length of grass? Sorry.. but that makes no sense me...
