Just wondering if anyone has done the math on how much time is saved using a 32 or 36 in. instead of a 21 in. mower. Wanted to get a larger mower into backyards, but the ones we have are too large.

You can reduce mowing times by 2 or 3 times using 32 or 36 mower. Higher speed. No bagging. Cleaner cut.

Acres per hour

Here is an acres per hour formula; MPH x width of cut ,divided by 99 = acres per hour.

Mow Times

LoneStar, Go to the Exmark page, they have a mowing efficienty chart. It is under an icon twards the bottom left of one of their pages. It will show @ 100 % ( not likely ) and at 80 %. The difference between a 36 in W/B and the 44in Ztr is nearly an acre per hour. Just a little chart to quickly show you speeds and amounts.
