    I,am looking at a big commercial job apx. 35 acres, I have may mow time down at 7 hrs. What is the best way to estimate may trim time? I have heard a good guess would be 30% to 50% of mow time....This job has allot and I really don't want to guess. Any ideas on how I should look at this...Thanks

    split the difference and go 40%. There is no good way to estimate this. Use you experience and go with your gut feeling. Good Luck.
