    We do a bunch. We most always use WB's and carry a pull out strap. My trucks are 4wd and have had to snag the mowers out of a wet ditch a time or two

    Need to know what "right of way" mowing consists of.
    Painting a broad brush......does it include using a tractor or is it more ztr type stuff. Maybe some of you guys have done it (typically biid work) and have regretted it later..

    Pays about $400,000 Drew. If i get it will call you.

    Depends on what the access area is used for as to the type and quality of the maintaince required. I have a customer who leased land for a cell tower. He is required to cut the brush, tree limbs and any growth along the road that would interfer with the trucks that go up the mountain. There is a High Power transmission line that runs through town that is about 100' wide that gets cut every few years with Kubota 4X4 tractors and brush hogs. Each tractor carries a hand held brush cutter for the spots they can't go with the tractors. There is no road, its just a cleared swath of land up and down the mountains.

    You better take a very good look at the area before you bid it.
