    Please help...I have to give a quote tonight so I need big help. Assuming it was the average size diamond, with no grass infield. Just cutting.....about how long would it take you?

    What is average size - Do they want the diamond double cut - Do they want it done weekly when long, or semiweekly when you can't even see grass coming out of the discharge? - Heck measure it and bid it.

    The softball fields I do i cut twice a week which allows me to go full speed (13 mph) and it takes me 80-90 minutes to do 4 of them with no infield to cut.

    i have 2 - 48" John Deere Quik Traks. Max speed of 8.5 mph. I will cut once per week, and single cuts.
