    Below are some google earth pictures of 5 of the 8 sites for lawn mowing and brush hogging. I have already submitted my bid but I was curious how you would all bid this.

    We will be mowing this with 2 men and a 928D/61 Grasshopper and a 928D/72 Grasshopper. There is very little trimming and blowing. Some of the brush hogging area can be done with the mowers as it doesn't grow that much or very thick. Each facility is drawn out (poorly!) and noted what needs to be done. Please "place your bid" on each individual site. After I've seen a few I will show near what i bid. Keep in mind this is partially a gov't bid and as long as the price doesn't go up, it is mine to keep as long as I would like. The only reason the previous mower (of 6 years) can't do it anymore is because of their new conflict of interest clause. Supposedly he took care of all 8 sites 7 days a week from 5pm-11pm mon-fri and 7-7 on sat and sun with one 61" mower and his son trimming. All fence rows will be sprayed with R/U FYI. The 1st facility is about 20 miles away and another facility which isn't pictured is about 15 miles down the road from the first. The rest are spread out about 6 miles apart and another not pictured is 45 miles away.

    If you've already submitted your bid then our time and opinions are not needed, warranted, or helpful. I wish you luck on getting approval. Looks like a little work!

    Well he was asking everyone's opinion on how much they would charge for those properties. to see if he is charging the same as some of the others around him or in different states.or whatever his goal is... So.... everyone's time and opinions are helpful.
