$60 bucks for a quality cut 3 1/2 acre property? You can have it all day. I find it hard to believe you can pull up unload the mower and mow and be out in 45 mins. Maybe a 1 1/2 in mid summer but no way in the spring time. I also will not take on lawns that don't want trimming or blowing off hard surfaces. $150 bare min if you take it. $210 might be a hard sell weekly but I don't know your area.

That looks good PSC. Is that the same one where you made the video of your 460 so we could hear the rpm drop when it was new?

Nah this is a different lawn. The one i made the video on was a smaller yard.

Exactly my thoughts when I saw that pic and post. Sounds like a load of barnacles to me.

I mean, it IS split up in a lot of different sections.. It's not just 1 big field I can fly over.
If you have to double cut Then you don't have the right mower for the job
I don't know your area but around here I be at 125-135 and be 1 hr and 15 mins job
