how long would it take to cut 50 acres (flat ) with a dixie chopper or scag cub or comparable?
What place are you mowing in Cleveland? Where you from? It would take a long time. I'd say at least 6-7 hrs.
I say 10 hours with a 72" Dixie.. maybe?
i don't know of any 50 acre area that is completely flat and without trees ect. I would say considering everything with a ztr - 72 inch cut is 2.5 days. let me know what you do it in.
i just had a call tonite i didnt call him back yet,so im trying to figure out a price.
Little to no trimming.
At LEAST $1K/cut
Sure would be nice with a big bat wing mower 12-16'cut!!!
Would it be weekly? I would charge about $50 per acre. Overalll would be about $2500 a week or whenever you cut it. Will you only be using a single mower? What's your company name? maybe i've seen you before.
I know you would need what Turf mag calls a WAM. Wide Area Mower. I have no idea how long it would take you. Depends on several things, how many employees runing how many mowers of what width.
If you are by your self I would think that this would be your ONE customer, and you would work it just like a 8 to 5 job. Just my thoughts.
There's a big spread there. $1000 to $2500 per cut.
The bigger the property, the less you make.
I would personally put two 72" ZTR's on it.
The cost of the two of these $27K max.
The cost of a big TORO, Jake, etc bat wing..... 30-50K and that will be about the only property that you use one on.
I'd do it for $900
If I had a 72" Dixie and it could be done in 15 hours or less
