    Never had to bid on a weed eating job before. I think it will be a good chance to get my foot in the door with these people. Long story short they own a crap ton of rental property's and a few business uptown. How long do you think it will take to weed eat all the red areas. There all fence lines and allot of post to weed around. Some of the area along the woods I can mow but still have to weed eat.

    Thought on how long it would take you to do it. And curious on what u would charge.

    To many variables to make an guess/estimate.

    That's what I'm having a problem with. The time I feel is needed is 6-8 hour of trimming. At 60$ a hour. I thought about throwing the bid out at 400$. I don't wanna lose money but I want my foot n the door to get in with these people.

    Are they mowing and just wanting you to trim?

    It's all horse pasture. They want the fence lines trimmed on both sides.

    Pass on it if all you can get is $60.00 an hr when only trimming. That's hard non stop physical labor. Pick up a few more accounts and sweat 1/2 as much for more $$$ then you'll make there.
