Sorry but there is no way that is a 150.00 job. We would not touch that for less than 600.00 and that is on a good day.
Unless you have a bush hog I am sure you had to rent one. Even if you can rent one for $50.00 (and that would be hard to find) then that left you with only $100.00 for that whole job plus disposal.
I have read what you have posted and can only say once again, you can't go by what a company WANTS to pay you. If you are not making money then it is not even worth it.
I am not trying to be nasty but if you did that for 150.00 minus brush hog and gas you MIGHT break even. What is the purpose of working in business just to break even or lose money.
I just had a company call me today with a load of grass cuts, for $20.00 each. Sorry no go if you lose money on one then you will lose even more on volume.

How much area do you cover, as in county's and do you have EO insurance.
