  • Field to lawn again + ghetto mower

    Real estate agents need to learn to not let their bank owned properties get this bad. The grass was going to seed. Two man crew knocked it down with my mower/ghetto brush cutter "frank(enstein)" and then eventually bagged. What would have you bid on this? I'm curious before admitting my own price

    I just picked one of these lawns up. 29000 square feet, grass up to my balls. $250.

      Hard to tell the full size of that, but I'd guess $300-$400.

      Then again, I doubt a bank-owned property would pay as well as an actual homeowner in that situation.

        Back to the forrest

        Yikes! Don't have a clue. My backwoods property doesn't look that bad. But I LOVE the knock down mower. Now if it just had a robotic arm to pick up beer bottles. LOL.

          I really can't tell how much yard is there, but it definitely looks to be in the 2 - 250 range. I love the mower made me crack up when I saw it

            How many sq ft is the property? How long did it take you to mow and clean up?

              Lolll @ lawnteam! Dude that Frankenstein mower is badass!! Pretty ingenious idea there. I'd say in the 225 -250 range..but like hedge said...good luck gettin the realtors to cut that check! They don't understand our line of work.

                  For a "normal" overgrown lawn it's normal rate X the number of weeks it hasn't been cut, plus add a little for the risk of equipment damage.

                  THAT isn't a "normal" overgrown lawn. Those biatches need to PAY to get that taken care of!

                    my mower/ghetto brush cutter "frank(enstein)"
                    You can't just show one pic of your custom "brush cutter" and not tell us more. How tall of a cut, do you do a pass at like 8" then at like 4" or is it locked at one setting?

                      I'd put 2 guys on it and give them 2 hours maybe 3. $ 2-250.

                        I can adjust the mower to any height you would normal home owner mower. I mow at the highest setting and then drop it, and finally, bag with another mower.

                        It took two guys (my grandfather and I) 5 hours, drive included, and charged $250, edged and vacuumed the grass. It would have been a complete wash without frank though. I didn't really take consideration of size, just threw the highest number I thought I could.

                        I used it on a costumer's lawn today "because the wanted to do it their selves but their back got too sore so sorry it's 30" in the backyard."

                          Looking back now, what would you have preferred to bid on it?

                            I'm actually pretty content. I (and my grandfather) made $20/hour after gas costs, saw a wild deer in the lawn while mowing, surely somebody will notice the massive renovation so that adds to my rep, although I would value it at $350 because all the hay did in-fact get vacuumed up. But it was a GREAT trial run for frank!

                              I just did an appartment lawn about 10000 sq/ft for $175. I had 6 hrs in it cause i tried to do it with my new troy-bilt 4 cycle trimmer. I wanted to see how it would do and it sucked for this. Oh well im learning. I changed to my push mower and completed it.
