Here is a chart you can use to figure your "AcresPerHour"

If you know the acres of an area you mow, then see if the time is the same for you.

If you don't know your costs, your productivity rates for your equipment, how to price your work other than "I'll bid a little less than it costs them", then you've already failed at this business.

Stop thinking the only way to get work is to beat the last guys price. That's a sure fire way to bankrupt yourself, run your equipment into the ground, and turn your life into a living hell...
