Size of mower in relation to yard size

I am curious as to what size lots you guys are mowing with different size mowers.....mostly walk behind mowers. I was wondering what a maximum yard size would be considered for say a 36" walk behind and a 48" walk behind and still do it efficiently. Is it feasible to think I can efficiently mow a 1 acre lot with a 48" walk behind and a sulky if I am good at operating it?

Efficiency is also based on charging the proper amount for YOUR operation. Both of our setups use a 36wb and 48ztr. Most of our yards are qtr acre minus house, hardscape and often pool with 4ft gated, fenced yard.
