Looking and finding commercial mowers for a large mowing job is not difficult; finding qualified and professional commercial grass cutting mowers who can do a quality job is, however, a bit more difficult. This article should help you in your search, but if you have questions, please call us at (817) 991-4318. We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing out of Fort Worth, Texas, and we will be happy to share our knowledge about the mowing industry with you.
The subtitle of this section says “commercial tractor mowing services.” The key word is “tractor,” and we’ll tell you why. What kind of commercial mowing job do you have? If you are talking about acreage mowing, one or more acres, you will need commercial tractor mowing services and not just two guys with push mowers. These acreage mowing jobs are priced by the hour usually, and mowing an acre with two push mowers takes quite awhile. On the other hand, a professional with the proper tractor equipment can mow fifteen or sixteen acres in an hour, and do it professionally.
Which would you rather pay?
Are you looking for brush hogging services?
Now we look at the other side of the commercial mowing business, namely land clearing and in addition brush hogging services. Brush hogging, or brush clearing, requires specialized tractors and specialized tractor mowing skills. Land clearing, or lot mowing, requires different equipment for different vegetation. Depending upon what kind of land you need mowed/cleared, the job may require access to specialized equipment not all commercial mowers will have access to. Look for a commercial mower who has the equipment necessary for your job, and who has the expertise to work that equipment properly.
A matter of insurance
One thing many customers do not consider is liability insurance. At Keith’s Tractor Mowing, we carry $1 million in general liability insurance. That way everyone is covered should damage to our customer’s property oc cur. It does happen. No matter how professional your commercial mowing company is, damage is possible. A stone is dislodged and tossed into the air by the mower . . . a half-sunken sprinkler line is run over and severed . . . a sprinkler head is broken . . . flying debris breaks a window in an out shed . . . this stuff happens, and you, the customer, needs to be covered. Make sure you ask about general liability insurance with any mowing company you hire.
One final word of advice . . .
Get recommendations about commercial mowers in your area. This is such a simple thing to do and yet many customers do not do it. Call around and ask local businesses for recommendations. You can also get recommendations from your local Chamber of Commerce of Business Association. Don’t take a chance on the unknown when others have already done the footwork for you. Ask your peers for the best commercial mowers in the area. Check out a couple of those recommendations and go with the one which feels the best to you.
Commercial mowers are easy to find; good commercial mowers will take a little more effort, but it will be worth it when you find one.
