    What is the biggest lawn that you can do comfortably on zero at one time?

    ? You might want to be a little more specific. Do you mean the sq ft per hour a zero can mow? Depends on the machine size. Virtually all the manufacturer websites have that info.

    What I really need to know is this. I have about 8-10 acres to mow. Mostly flat with a couple of terreces and one pond. With a 27hp machine and a 60" deck how long in the real world shoud it take me? Not many trees are all. I know what the dealer says, but I need to know from someone who has no dog in this fight.

    With that size machine and just mowing, no trimming, it should take you about 2-2.5 hours.................Lynn

    I bag an 8 acre yard, only because the owner pays extra to do it. And he has a very good place to dump it. I use a 72 in 27 hp water cooled Lazer. In the spring it takes bout 8 hrs. In the fall 5 hrs.

    Okay, that's a lot of grass to collect!
