man hours for installing drip tubing

Bidding on a 100,000 linear foot drip system. How many man hours to roll out a 1000' roll of drip tubing in a straight line. 500' rows approximately. So maybe best to break it down into man hours for 500'. Conditions are flat and wide open and basically rolling out for future farm plantings. staples every 25' -50' or so? 1 man hour per 500'? What do you think?

There is a netifim spool mounted on a wheel barrow type frame. It takes 1000' rolls. I think if you used that you could roll it out as fast as you could walk down the row.

Any idea where to find this tool? Might be worth a try. But still trying to figure out man hours as rolling out drip is prob 80% of the job.

I know Atlantic irrigation sells them. Yesterday me and two guys laid about 500' on a privet hedge and stapled it in about 10 or 15 min.

It's for the 1000' rolls and if you were doing and ag project with 100,000' of drip to install I think it would be a great tool.
