    For an avg 10K lawn $70/hr is the norm we knock out a 10K lawn just mowing in 11 mins we've timed it that's not the trimming and all just the mowing.

    Thanks...my opinions are from years of experience and yes...with lots of trial and error. I do like seeing the different numbers that people uae as their operating cost. Gas alone eats $4 per hour....my goal is to pay for a mower in 1500 hrs. I can go into a long spill on how to accurately figure your true operating cost. It gets into everything from blades..belts..oil..grease...filters..tires..and a little for the odd stuff....i can assure you.. if you calculate that...plus your insurance...it is more that $10 an hr.
