I generally average around 200k. I do have some days that I do 500-600k but I try to limit those. I could split those big properties into two day but id rather work a few more hours and bang it out in one.

Those are brutal days lol. If I didn't have a ride on it sure as heck wouldn't happen. I don't miss the days of pushing a spreader. I generally pull hose on all of my lawns up until 25k sq ft or so and then consider spraying from that too. I always feel like I get better results pulling the hose out.

My tank ran dry at 150,000 sqft.

A lot depends on if you are applying to small lawns or big lawns. Invoices and paperwork take extra time to fill out.
And how much you are driving? If under 30 miles--easy. Under 50, miles that is good. Over 50--and there is too much driving time to allow for a full day of spraying.
