    I'm mowing a yard that takes me 3 hours riding time on a 60 inch super z. No trimming. What should I be charging? thanks

    How many acres?

    Hours wise, 170-200 bucks depending on your market.

    I would be impressed if you got $120 for it.

    $40/hour and no trimming isnt bad at all.

    I have a lawn that takes 2 hours in the sping and 1 1/4 hours in the summer and I get more than $120. Glad I live in the north.

    I wouldn't go any lower than $150. But $200 is a nicer number. Somewhere in that range

    P.S. Don't call me a yankee, I'm a SOX fan.

    $180 sounds about right for me.

    I would charge at least $250, but may try for $300 depending on the customer.

    Quite a bit of difference in the quotes you got wasn't there. From a low of $120.00 to as much as $250.00 - $300.00.

    Getting down to brass tacks -- it depends on the area of the country what the market will bear.

    Wait and see if you get some replies from LCO's near your location.

    I'm guessing this is about a 4-5 acre lawn? I would charge between $240 and $300 per visit, with no trimming that is.
