    How much would you want to mow/trim/blow a lawn that takes 1 guy 2 hr and 20 min.

    I am not sure how long it takes with 2.

    I do one that takes about that, give or take 10 minutes...I charge him $55 BUT he is loaning me the trailer I use since I am not in the position just yet to buy one. Plus I do other restoration work for him...

    If it took ME 140 minutes, it would cost 140 dollars.

    But then I've cut and trimmed a full acre in 49 minutes before.

    I'd say at least $100.00. I try to make about $50.00 an hour.

    You guys will mow five acres for 120?

    Eeeeks. I have a five and a half acre easy cut estate that I get 150 for and next year its going to 175 at least.

    I get the thing done with a JD 757/60 and trimmed in 4 hours
