    does any1 have any advice as to about how much per acer most of us should be getting in connecticut. i operate in the west hartford farmington area and i have a few acre plus lawns one might be over 2 and im throwing out a bid on another huge one. i do not want to be a low baller, ive been told i should be getting around 50 bucks an acre. for my church that means 100 dollars, it takes us roughly 45 mins to cut and trim

    With three guys working you should be in the neighborhood of 150.00 per hour.

    $100 sounds pretty reasonable... unless there's a lot of trees or a lot of trimming invloved

    Right....3 guys should be at around $50 per hour...regardless of if they are pushing a $300 push mower, walking behind a $3600 walk behind, or are operating a $10,000 Z.
