    I have a 61" scag and I mow a 3 acre yard in just over an hour and 10 minutes. It has several trees and is fairly hilly but not to bad. I charge $95 to mow it every week and that includes weed eating. Theres not much blowing and no edging. It all depends on how tough the yard is and if theres very many trees, bushes etc. to mow around. Keep in mind I'm cutting a full 12" more than you are. I'd say you could get the yard done in about the same amount of time I get this 3 acre yard done. So you have to ask yourself, is $30 more to mow for an hour or better worth the effort?

      remember,with 2 to 4 weeks growth between cutting ,you will be double cutting the lot ,and running the crap out of your equipment ,which is why you need to charge more per cut than a weekly cut .

        even with no trimming, I would still bid around $150 a cut biweekly.

        I would say I wasnt interested in cutting it once a month.
