    Have a potential new client. Has a beautiful Zosia lawn. He uses a reel mower. I would be bidding 40-45 per cut with my mower. If I use the customers reel mower (since I don't own one). Should I charge anymore?

    What kind of real mower does the customer use. I would not advise using the customers equipment. You never know what you may hit with a reel mower and damage the cutting knives.

    I am talking now to people that I know in the Business to get the correct charges for the local area. I do not want to charge less then the going rate.
