Thats a good account as long as you have the mower for it. You could easily make $150 a hour.

I can only get about $40.00 an acre here...I have tried the per hour thing, and it just messes with your head. There is no reason to get technical about it, charge by the job. I've learned that I have came pretty damn close in the past, and usually come out making more, if I just charge by the job. Remember, you want to be fair to yourself, but if you bid everything at 100-150/hr, and only have a 42'' riding tractor, you might have a hard time getting business. Charge by the job, and then as you go upgrade to better, faster, equipment, and make more money for hour. Don't make it more complicated than it has to be, you'll drive yourself nuts. Plus, it is what your market can bear as well.
