I have a 15 foot bush hog. What is a fair to charge for bush hogging a 40 acre neglected field? I have seen adds in the paper for $35 per hour for a 6 foot bush hog.

Going rate here is $18 per acre for reasonably clean ground, 20 acres and larger, just weeds/tall grass. Heavy brush is a different matter.

SOME un-insured, non-legitimate business (ie, doesn't pay taxes, ect) part-timers charge as little as $30 an hour for smaller tractor/mower rigs. Full time legitimate operators charge upwards of $60 per hour for 6'/7' mowers behind capable tractor.

15' batwing behind capable tractor (here) runs from $90 to $125 average. Larger acreage (hence, less transporting equipment expenses) can run less.

I usually get $125 hr for 95hp tractor/15' batwing. Will discount SOME on jobs of more than 8 hrs.

For a 15 ft. wide bush hog with 100+ HP, I think you should be getting at least $100/hr. A mower and tractor that size doesn't come cheap. Dave

I get $65/hr for 45 hp tractor+5'bush hog. Even more for the rubbertrack crawler with a 4' mounted up front. If you don't pay for your equipment, you won't stay in business.
