an acre of clear flat grass / weeds what ever you wanna call it ? only mow no trimming no blowing ?

I will use a 52 toro grand master or my 48 with the sulky and zoom through it

Go demo a 33hp 72''Chopper you will see
Or even any big hp 72'' mower
What deal being up north I cut lawn 2.5-3'' tall some taller then that What ever customer wants
I rather cut all lawns 3'' tall make more healthy lawn

depends on the grass lol..centipede down here can be cut at 1" and it's fine...if i cut at 3" they would call and say you didn't cut the grass lol....anyways i can't afford a 72" 30+ hp mower and it would be too big for most of my properties

Id prolly charge 50-55 for an acre of grass, would take us maybe 20 minutes to mow it all.

That's why you can't fathom being able to cut an acre in 15mins. It's VERY doable, even with a 61" cut. I know first hand as well with my Scag.
