i read where some of the solo guys on here are doing 30 to 40 lawns per week .i have 65 and it's all i can do to keep up with 3 people . i have lawns from 1/2 acre to 8 acres every week. with an average of prob around 2.5 acres per cut . so how are you solo guys doing so many ? they must be 10k lawns and like 5 in a row or something .

With us (my father and I) we are doing 75 a week. Around here you wont find many big lots. The average size around here is about 15K. We have 5 that are 1 acre+ each and one of those is 2 acres. All of our lawns are in groups of 3 or more. Our largers lawns are all in a row. We cut 6 acres, trim blow and go in about an hour and 30 minutes give or take according to conditions. Thats with a M48 Tank and 34Z Gravely.

I do 15+ per week that are avg 5-7,5k by myself. Most of them are grouped in neighborhoods some on the same block.There is some advantage to being in suburbia!

In central NJ the average lawn(not lot size) is about 15-18K for our residential with the largest residential at 160K. It would be tough for a solo operation to make it here.

All of ares are 6k-11k but most around 9k-10k. I run my own route by myself and working from 9-7 I can do 12-14 depending on how i'm feeling for the day sometimes more sometimes only about ten this is all without sulky just my walkbehinds and my two feet. I could do more but I stop off at the house atleast twice a day. You just have to realize that pain is just weakness leaving the body. I usually cut from 40-60 yards a week by myself.
