AS they have move from a postage stamp garden to a place with 2 acres of lawn, they dont have a mower big enough. As they have not budgetted for a large mower they are looking to pay someone to cut. I think they both work so time is of the essence for them too.

Ask what they are willing to pay then do the math from there. cutting grass on a ride on is awesome, forrest gump tastic.

Have you thought about getting a mower for behind the quad Andy?

I have considered a tow-behind, but the problem is i have aggressive Kenda Executioner tyres and they will plough up the immaculate lawns:biggrin:

starting to think it will be less grief just to farm out the mowing.

Initially going down the hire route for this job, if more comes in I'll re-assess later. Got a ride-on for a tenner a day, I supply fuel. That'll do for now.
