    Howdy. Have this bid I'm trying to help a friend with. Any and all inputs would be most welcome. Thanks ahead of time

    spraying
    4.1 acres soil sterilant on gravel parking lot, dam road and 2 narrow, but long area's of smaller riprap
    29 acres of riprap spot spraying. They don't want anything growing, but no sterilant

    21 acres gopher control with plowing bait in with a tractor and burrow builder machine

    76 acres mowing total March through Sept
    21 acres which is pretty darn steep, as it's the backside of a dam and fairly flush growth
    55 acres mostly flat and not that great of growth
    needs to be kept 6-12"

    You’ll want one of the robot slope mowers most likely. They do better than ventras I believe.

    Nah, it's mowable with a wide stance tractor and a 12'-15' bat. Just on the close side of not being though.

    That’s good. I did a dam overseeing project once. It was super steep.
