    Def need a new mower now. Motor is toasted on my 36" so my winter project will be to swap motors and that will be my backup. Looking for a 48" belt drive if you guys know anybody thats got one.

    I'm curious to know what other guys in NJ are charging for lawn cutting cause sometimes I feel like I'm too cheap.. I know it depends on size but most of my accounts that fall in the 2000-3000 sq ft range, I'm averaging about $30 a cut. That's just for mow, trim and blow.

    Started around that price, as i think most people do. Once you start growing and having to hire people that pricing becomes real hard to maintain real quick. I usually raise the price every year now. i get 32-42 depending on the person, the neighborhood, etc.

    Depends on the customers lawn. I have some that are still growing pretty good, also have others that aren't growing at all.
