    Long story short. Bidding on a cemetary. Director says w/ a 21" self-propelled it takes aprox. 20 hrs to mow only(15+- acres). How long can I expect to do it w/ a Z100 44". I can get basically everywhere w/ my Z that the 21" goes.

    I bet with a 21" it takes longer than 20 hours. You will not cut 3/4 acre per hour with a 21". With the Z, if you have a good bit of open area you might cut some at 2-3 acres an hours. Some with lots of stones maybe a little less.

    I cut a 2 acre church with a 52" Z in 35 minutes. All open areas.

    If my calculations are right and they are mowing with a 21 in 20 hours and it is all open you can use your 44 and have it done in less than 4 hours of mowing. then count on all of your trimming.
