    How much do you think i should charge for this lot? Its on an up slope and grows very fast in the early season and could be cut twice. I t takes about 3 hrs to mow with my 52" lazer. I charged them 100.00 last yr but i think i should charge around 120-140. What do you guys think??

    I see alot of discussion on here about what to charge for mowing jobs.

    I feel alot of has to do with your location. I can not get near the price for mowing hear in the farm country of Missouri that someone in the big city locations can get for the same amount of work.

    I would say your best bet would be to charge what you are confertable with and will give you a decent profit.

    Some will have to charge more because of higher overhead than someone with not as high and expense for there operation.

    As long as you are happy with what you charge and can cover your costs and profit from the job then charge as much or as little as you feel is best for your situation.

    This is just my opinion and I am not judging how anyone does there way of charging for their work.
