Who said anything about 30k? This contract was closer to 40... And it took a three man crew 2.5 days in average growing conditions... Granted my dad and wife aren't all that fast, but 5-6 guys could probably get it in a day. We averaged less than an acre an hour because of how chopped up this place is. There was 10-12 hours a week of just string trimming. Three of us could get it mowed in a good 8-9 hour day.
