    If you don't know your costs, your productivity rates for your equipment, how to price your work other than "I'll bid a little less than it costs them", then you've already failed at this business.

    Stop thinking the only way to get work is to beat the last guys price. That's a sure fire way to bankrupt yourself, run your equipment into the ground, and turn your life into a living hell...

    $25 an acre up to 5
    $20 an acre 5-10
    $15 an acre over 10
    but its more of a sliding scale
