Hi Guys, Great forum. I currently live in Southern California and have been mowing lawns here for over a decade. I will be relocating to East Tennessee this winter and will have to rebuild my business there. The lawns out here are small (average less than 1500sqft) compared to the mega-acre spreads in Tennessee. All work out here is strictly walk behind. In Tennessee I will have to add a ZTR to my toys to handle the acreage. I was talking to a guy in Tennessee and he said the average charge was $35.00 a acre! This cant be right! I could get eight times that much in Cali. I know the ZTRs are fast mowers but $35.00 a acre doesn't seem worth it.
