acres per hour with zmax

First please don't bash me for such a dumb question. I could be asking about pricing!!

Most of my properties are under 20k. I have a bid on a property that is 60k. no spot spraying all pretty open. Machine is set at 5 mph and stock tips.

I'm guessing it would take 1-1.5 hours to spray not counting fill time? Just curious what your timing per acre is on the max.

I bet you could do it 1 hr you only have to fill once

And you could carry all the fert

I have a job that's 55th 2 houses and a garage and i can do it in a hour and i only have a T3000 and i edege every thing.

yeah. I can carry all the fertilizer and if I fill up before I start will have enough liquid. So it will be mostly riding and clean up. I was thinking an hour spray or spread. then clean up of fert.

Exactly. Spread? Man, 20 minutes no problem on 60k. Maybe 15.

At 10 feet wide, you would cover 4400 sqft per minute. 13.6 minutes is the theoretical minimum time to complete the treatment. Filling the hopper and paperwork time is going to slow you down.
