    Hey fellas. I have to submit a bid to this commercial property for grass and snow for next year. In my area I get about 28-32 mows per property throughout the season. For snow, we get an average of 120 inches of snow. I would plow this property on a 2-3 inch push for seasonal. Just looking for some input on what to price this property at. For equipment I have a 61" Ferris Zturn, 61" Ferris wb, Ferris 48" wb and many 21`s for the smaller areas. For snow I have an F350 with a Fisher XLS and F250 with a 7'6" with wings so about a 9 footer. Just looking for some help. I appreciate it guys. Happy Holidays

    This place is not too far from me, it is a IBEW union office. Wonder if they want their contractors to be union :).

    Well id be at 6k for the year in mowing, and 12k in plowing for the winter before salt. I can break it down if you want... Im better at pricing grass, not so good with the snow

    Could you break down the numbers? I'd be close to 16k for the summer alone, just curios how you figured the price.

    Yeah sure,
    Well I figured it would take me about 3 hours to cut, trim and blow this place. So that's 180, round up to 200/cut. 30 cuts a year makes 6k. Im a solo guy so im right at 60/65 hour for mowing. And in the calculator it said this property is 2.5 acres. I can easily cut 2.5 acres in about 1.5 hours if im taking my time with a 60 inch zero, and about another 1.5 to trim and blow. I didn't really take into account all the trees and signs/obstacles so time may go up and so will price. Hard to tell with a picture. Would you mind breaking down your price? Thank and happy holidays!

    I left extra for mulch, fert, and trash.... a lot depending on how the contract is worded.
