I don't do a lot of bushhogging, I don't even have the equipment to do it. I have one property that we bushhog the horse pastures twice per year, but it's included in the maintenance contract, and I just rent when I need to do it.
So, I'm wondering what others charge. The tractor, trailer, and bushhog rent for around $350 per day.
I just picked up a builder who needs their empty lots bushhogged now, and periodically throughout the year until they're ready to build on them.
I'm looking at 158 lots, and I need to be the best possible price as I'm not their only LCO...they're putting it out to bid.
I have no idea the size of the lots, I'm seeing if the rep can give me an avg size, either way I'll need to go look at them. But let's assume they're 1/3 acre or less, and they're scattered throughout 6 neighborhoods.
More than likely haven't been touched since late last summer, so let's assume the growth is around 4'+' tall.
Off the top of my head I think I could do maybe 1 neighborhood per day, but that may be a little ambitious. There's also a few utilities and maybe some ditches on some that will need to be string trimmed.
So I'm looking at a solid week of bushhogging, and as of right now I'm not sure how to price it.
What would be a good ball park price?
Any help is appreciated.
