    Im cutting a new field this weekend, its 1.5 acres, all light vegetation, approximately 5' tall. Im getting $225. for the job. I think this is low, but the client has a small kubota/hog of her own, so i went a little low on the price. Her machine overheats when she uses the pto?

    Travel time, half an hour each way. I could bang it out in just over an hour, but its a new field to me so im gonna go slow and watch for hazardous obstacles!

    I get 75.00 per hour. They get a someone who shows up with experience and a newer machine. I can usually cut 1-2 acres per hour if they don't like the price there are guys that charge 50 per hour that's fine with me.
