sod removal

Posted this in another section and didnt get much response. How long do you think it would take 3 guys to cut, roll, load 1k of sod? How long with a skidsteer loading and how long with wheelbarrow?

1.5 hours tops with three guys. 1000 sq. feet isn't that much.

yea 1.5 tops if you have two people pulling it up as you cut it will go quicker. I wouldn't bother even starting the skid for this. Wheel barrow into truck using the ramp you get with the sod cutter at the rental store.
