I am looking for some suggestionss on an overall estimate on these two properties. They are both apartment complexes with some wide areas of lawn and also some small nitpicky areas around the buildings. I have a 52" Ferris Zturn and a pushmower, and I think that I can do 280,000 and 222,000 respectively witht he 52" and will have about 15,000 and 5000 of pushmowing respectively. I will have to trim all areas and blow any clippings necessary every week. I will also have to blow off the pavement. How much production can I make mowign with a pushmower? It seems like I will be doing as much walking between areas as I will be actually mowing areas. Both total properties are at least 10 acres so quite a wide area. Edging is not included here. Spring cleanup is not included, fall cleanup is not included (We are doing a seperate proposal for landscape maintenance and these things will fall into that category) I know many variables come in here but can you guys help me compare to what I come to as a formula. I spoke with another commercial property mower and he says he operates his wide area mowers 52" up to 72" at a 50% production rate at 5 MPH Average. Although the mower manufacturers have 80% efficiency. What do you guys use? At 5 MPH and 100% efficiency ( which to me means a football field mowed in a spiral basically (NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN) I would be able to mow 112,000, at 80% = 89,600, 65% = 72,800, at 50% = 56,000. I will post my #'s after I get some ideas or estimates from you guys, I do already have them figured out, I just want you guys to give me an impartial guess, and I know it isnt easy to estimate without actually seeing the property but can any of you give me a range? What it might be high and what it might be low?
