    $160 for Mowing. (126 x $1.25)

    Trimming would be based on however long it took to trim based on our hourly rate additionally.

    Hope this helps.

    yeah that's what I meant... per k :D
  7. Depends on how bad you want it? How long will it take you to mow?

    Bidding by per1000 sq/ft is not vary accurate.

    You said not much trimming and easy to mow. So you have close to 2.8 acres.

    1 60" ZTR = 1 hour or less for 1 person

    I would shoot for $100 but you could go from $50 and up for a solo cutter

    I agree with you on everything but I am not sure what you mean by $50.00 and up for a solo cutter.

    I'm a solo cutter and mayby I'm reading it wrong but there is no way in the world I would touch 2.8 acres for under 100 even using a 60"Z. I guess I do know of some guys that would but then you get what you pay for.

    LAWNGODFATHER, You would shoot for $100 but start at $50? Please explain, It sounds like St. Louis is a cheap place to hire a LCO.
