    I got a call for quotes on 4 baseball fields all right next to each other. IT ISNT A CITY OWNED ACCOUNT SO I CAN'T GET MUNICIPAL DISCOUNT ON MOWERS! How long does a baseball field take with a 60" exmark Z or how much to you guys charge for Baseball field

    How big? Grass infield, or skin? Are you going to maintain the slins too? Warning tracks? Fencelines?

    The fields that I mow, with grass infield, warning track all the way around the outside of the grass, takes about 45 minutes - an hour with 28 hp Kubota, 60" deck.

    The softball field that I mow, with dirt infield and no warning track, takes about 35 minutes.

    I haven't actually been able to look at them yet, cause I can only go after the school hours. I have to take care of anything on the inside of the fence. I will post more info when i get it

    If they're school property, most manufacturers will give you the same discount, or at least similar as they do a school district. It doesn't just have to be muni owned.

    You might have to work up the chain of command from your dealer, or find one that'll get it for you, but it's there.

    i mow 4 softball fields, just the outfields take about 1.25-1.5 hours depending of growth with a Gravely 260Z at full ground speed.
