    Not trying to be rude, but I personally wouldn't tackle 2 acres with a walk behind and a 21 incher.

    Well im pretty shure i have the time to do the lawn.The mower ill be using has a true track sulky so it will be a little bit faster.But im still unshure of what to charge.Odds are if she wants me to mow it i will because i am in desperate need of customers.
