    First of all, what are you talking about with this comment? Is this your assumption or part of the contract?

    I agree...

    If I had to break up a 300K lawn into 3 days I would add so much I wouldn't even get the bid!

    That is so stupid not to let you knock it all out at one time!

    3 trips, 3 times to unload is a bunch of crap!

    Are you saying that it specifies in the contract that you are not allowed to spray more than 100,000 sq ft a day?

    Or are you saying that you can't spray more than 100K a day due to time and or equipment limitations.

    Cuz I have a 200 gallon tank sprayer that can do 100K +/- per tank and I can get 4 maybe 5 tanks sprayed out in a day if conditions are right. Maybe more if it was all wide open and flat.

    Sounds like you about to get in over your head.

    4.50/k. going rate here (unless you're tg). I think they're closer to 3.50/k.
