    thanx, but this is not all together and it needs to be weed eated and edged. do you think all that can be done in 2 hours time? or what are you figuring per hour bases? thanx again.

    Flex figures 100 an hour and yes, he could do that in a little over an hour

    his price, but that 52 inch is a little small to be doing
    commercial's this size or larger on a weekly basis. You will
    probabally be looking at 2 to 2.5 hrs mowing time alone,
    But with right equip 100.00 to 150.00 a cut includes weedeating
    and triming
