    I
    I see what you are saying and you may well be right but we are talking 200 buildings worth of property in just 8 hours? I guess the rest has to be mostly parking lot!

    What mowers are you using now? Do you not like them? What exactly are you looking for?

    150 an hour is too low for 8 men , also thats a big bid i would make sure you get a installment of payment up front , ive been burned before with large accounts like that.
