Roughly 6 hours, except for going to the bathroom, getting a drink, empty the bags or putting gas in the tank.

A couple weeks ago I got on my mower at 7:30 AM, started, mowed until my left tank ran out, got off, stretched, got right back on and switched tanks, ran the right tank out at about 4:30, put some more gas in the tank, went right back to mowing and stopped at about 6:30 when it got really dark, so I guess I was mowing for about 11 hours. My back and legs hurt for the next three days.

not been on as long as all day straight.... I've been on for about 7-8 hours total & that feels like riding a rough roller coaster even then
