Now, let’s talk about acreage lawn mowing.
A simple definition of acreage mowing
Very simply, acreage mowing is any mowing job one acre or more in size. It will almost always involve the use of large acreage tractor and other tractor mowing equipment like a brush hog attachment.
How is price determined for an acreage mowing job?
Most acreage mowing jobs are bid on based on the amount of time it will take to mow the acreage, the use of the large equipment (depreciation fee), and any mileage incurred if the job is too far away.
Roughly speaking, a professional acreage mowing company can mow upwards of fifteen acres in an hour. Multiply the hours by the hourly rate, add on a fee or two, and you have a rough estimate of what you will pay. If you shop around, you should see some conformity in the amount charged for your job. Our suggestion: toss out the lowest big, and the highest bid, and choose from the remaining bids based on experience and references.
Is the acreage mowing insured?
Do not assume that the acreage mowing services is insured. Not all of them are. For reference, Keith’s Tractor Mowing carries $1,000,000 general liability insurance for every job we do. That covers any accident or any damage caused by the large machinery i.e. flying rocks. You should not sign with any company which does not have liability insurance. Do not assume your homeowners’ insurance will cover any damage; have that extra layer of protection with the mowing company’s insurance.
How to find a quality acreage mowing professional
There are a lot of imposters out there these days, imposters who are not, shall we say, reputable in any way. They may have the proper equipment, but no skill or know-how in using that equipment. They may talk a good game, but have no skills at all.
Call around, get references, and follow-up on those references. It will not take you too long to find out, from former customers, if an acreage mowing company is reputable and can do what they say they can do. You are spending quite a bit of money for this service, so take the time to check out these companies before you hire one of them.
