No one can tell you what to bid. We dont know what equipment you use or how fast you use it. Why dont you watch the current comp to see their times and number of people working

If we could see how big the area is and here your thoughts on how long you think it would take you, it would be helpful.

What kind of equipment will you be using and how long do you feel it will take you to perform?
