So we could potentially mow 19 acres but its chopped up in different section, hills, and obstacles. Not my faul you mow at grandma speeds on your tractor lol The one is a 26hp diesel kubora ztr and the other is a 21hp diesel grasshopper. We use oh about a total of 4 gallons of diesel there so I can mow it for about $11 in diesel

Wow that's amazing. My Scag's with 61" deck 35hp VG will cut 5 acres per hour if your really pushing it on slow growth on a weekly wide open account. I guess the secret I'm missing is I don't have a diesel. I'll have to put a Bota and Hopper diesel on the list to demo next year.

I also wished diesel was $2.75 gal here in TX as well. It was $3.74 per when I filled up the truck yesterday.
