    If this is road side can you give idea of width as an adverage and milage ?

    As far as per acre you could charge anywhere between 195 and 215 per and include the weed trimming and edging. $145-$165 per acre. This is the going rate here in KY for 15' batwing. It is very steep and hilly here.

    Fert take the RETAIL cost of the materials and multiply it by 4.75 this should be close.

    Liter pick up should be safe at .5 (1/2) acres per man per hour @ your hourly rate and figure in the dump charges for total.

    If this is GOVERMENT bid make sure you check for prevailing wages for each persons catagory (operater and laborer) if pervailing wages are required. Better safe than sorry find out now instead of later. Could cost you your business if it is prevailing and you bid normal wages, win the bid and find out later it is pervailing and you have to pay all the back difference in wages due to your employees not to mention the fines and penalties that go along with it.

      We do long grass work from a single lot to unlimited acres, the price for a clean smooth lot (4th gear mowing) is $150 for the first acre and $45 per additional acre. This is the price with no line trimming or spraying. The cost for linetrimming is $52 per man per hour, litter pick up is as Tim stated .5 acre per hour per manhour. This price goes away for weekly maintenance contracts, and the spraying is what you need to add percentage wise for you and the man hours to spray. Good Luck,
