    Close by are a lots that are 5acres+ plus lot. Many are smooth easy to mow.

    I have a 42" Rider and a 60" pull behind. I mowed 4 acres the other day in approx 1.5 hours.

    A lot of these people use a rider and do it theirself. I'm hoping by now some of them wish they could afford to have it done instead.

    Based on a 100" cut and being close by anybody have ideas Per acres?

    i'm not in ur area, but i do have some accounts of that size.... and i get btwn $185-200 for them depending on condition...

    $55 for initial acre + $105 ($35 X 3 acres) + $25 (for 5th acre)= $185 total, but some are $200 depending on conditions....

    $185/5 acres= $37 per acre.... $200/5 acres= $40 per acre...

    FYI I charge $55 usually for single or initial acres, depending on conditions....
