So, a local competitor just got some big job i guess, so he is passing on his other "big" job because he cant to do bothl. I have NOT seen the place yet, but i know some of my friendly competition has been talking about wanting it. As i understand it is 42 vacant lots in an upcoming housing development. I mow them twice a month. The guy that is sending them over was doing the work with a 52" lazer and he said it took him 8-10 minutes per lawn. The he went and tirmmed and blew down sidewalks. His price to them was 363 per time. So, for those of you less mathematiclly challenged (which i face to sometimes) that is double that rate and you get the monthly total. It seems rather LOW to me. What do yall think? equation again........ 42 empty lots in newer housing development + 8-10 minutes per lawn + them trimming and blowing sidewalks=363(?). Man this sounds too wierd. Second question: I have a customer that i mow 1.5 acres for, 80$ per time basically. She wants to add two more acres. (All basically flat with mostly open areas/field mowing). She also has an air stip next to her property. 8 ACRES! Her current provider for the air strip come out with hs tractor and brush hog and mows it. He gets 132$ per time. Perhaps i am losing my mind here, but that seems REALLY low. I am thinking about bidding 300 month flat rate. I know she will go NO higher. I figure ill buy them Acre Ease things to save Major amounts of time. Anyone ever use them acre ease? Tips, ideas, help? I dont know, it late, i tired, but curious none the less. Have a good Spring all. May your phones Never stop rining. lol.
