but what are your rates on cutting per acre? I've never had a contract on vast/wide open spaces but I have the chance to bid on a large tract of land.....just cut and go.....no edging, very little weed trimming....... By open spaces, I mean over 100 acres....to be cut twice per month in an upscale development. Thanks in advance for any tips/suggestions. P.S. Normal rates are usually $40-$45 per man hour.
