    Im getting ready to resod my lawn and was wanting to know how long it would take to cut 1000 sq feet with a rented sod cutter. It would be just myself and was thinking a 4 hour rental would be fine.

    I was estimating about 2.5 hours working with no stops. sound about right?

    depends on the machine... your experience with it... soil hardness and other factors. No one can accuratly estimate how long it will take you with little to no experience along with the other factors.

    A 1000sq' shouldn't take longer than 1/2 hour cutting it, its the rest of the work that'll kill ya. Make sure you cut it as thin as you can with the best results
