What would you charge?

What would you charge for an inital lawn cut.(34,400 sqft) Grass was 8 inches and produced 9 cyd of lawn clippings. I'm not the most experience on pricing and find it beneficial when the senior members have pricing posts. It helps me learn where pricing should be in the PP industry.

400.00 - 150/hr includes dumping

9cy of clippings? How many times did you empty and what bagger do you have?

We 3x or even 4x cut a place before even putting the bagger on, you can loose a lot of debris that way.

Just over 3/4 of an acre of 8 inch tall grass produced 9CY???

We mow with Walker GHS mowers (arguably the best bagging finish mowers on the market today) and I doubt I would have been able to get more than 3-4 cubic yards of clippings from a cut like that, and that is if the grass was thick & healthy.

As far as pricing goes - RepairBase CE generates a price of $306.80 for that particular GC. That size & height of cut is completed by my crews regularly and only takes about 30-40 minutes of mower on the ground time. Add in the 5 minutes of grass dumping at the end of the day, and all-in-all, not a bad wage.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

There was a good amount of residual clippings from the last time the yard was cut.

when it gets that bad this doesn't really work. I had an acre lawn that I did which was just like this and I got about 10 yards of clippings off of it. The problem when it gets that tall is that you are basically bailing hay.
