Cut 43 lawns in about 20 hrs. over 4 days - Tues - 11/ 5 hrs, Wed - 10/ 4 hrs, Thur - 11/ 5 1/2 hrs, Fri - 11/ 4 hrs. Now that does not include maintenance time, blade changes, stopping for Gas, etc. so add another 3 hrs or so a week. Average size is 1/4 acre with two man crew and the equipment listed below.

Did it all my man. Solo, two man crew, 3 man 4 man. When I did it solo I found about 7 lawns a day worked for me. With a two man crew 15 lawn per day. 3 man crew 20 lawns per day. 4 man 25-30 per day. This was based on a 5 day week. But it all depends on lawn size/ mower size. If the land is flat and open thats the best. Hilly takes longer and gated depends on the opening. If its a double gate you can put a rider on it. Single gate a 48 if its big. For a smaller gate a 36. I try to pick up lawns that I can run a 48 on the whole area. But if I had it my way I would only do open flat lawns. You can put a rider on it and clean ups are easy.
I run only two man crews now. When I had bigger crews I always found someone standing around. When we get on the Big Boys then I send another crew to help. The only time we run a bigger crew is if a truck is down and for fall clean ups.
Good Luck with your new mower. Happy Stripping!!

Right now I'm doing 15. I did 9 on Wednesday which took me 7.5 hours, and I did 6 on Thursday and those took about 8 hours. So far the mower is working out great.
