    Bid on a 3.5 acre residential today, I thought it would take me about 2.5 hours to mow, gave a bid of $120.. Another guy comes in and bids $80.. Granted, this is a low maintence farmyard where the old guy just wants it cut, but I thought I was giving him a pretty good deal because its easy and he will never complain..

    I think your price is Fair, about 34 an acre, or 30 an acre that would be 105, but not 80= 22 an acre????????

    I think you just have the wrong equipment. For a low maintenance farmyard, that probably shouldn't take more than an hour or so.

    Thanks... My biggest properties are the one acre plus type, felt a little out of my element bidding on this, but as a residential only solo, would have fit nicely into my Monday schedule...

    I agree with bushtrimmer.
    I could mow and trim that in about an hour or so. 72 Super Z vs 48 ztr
