Sorry..forgot to mention...it is a 60 acre complex plus there is another 80 acre complex 20 miles away. I would save on rider expense as well as fuel....tractor fuel (it's very efficient) vs 3-3.5 gallons per hour on a ZTR. The edges around here are allowed to be sprayed with Round Up.....just not around the goals b/c they move them around.
The crew that used to have it had a big Toro machine with a 14 ft span....ike a large tractor all by itself. In 6 hours it made $750 on those field but he said it was high on maintenance. They paid $27k for that unit used and it already had a few thousand hours on it.
Supposedly the productivity on the 11 ft mower listed is 8 acres/hr.
