    Im looking at bidding on a mowing job at first of year. Here is the deal, I have two Hustler super z with 60 inch cut decks. How long would it take me to mow 51 acres with my equipment? And also would it wear my mowers out quick?

    As far as time I don't know. I bet you're in the 40,000 / year range though. Sweet account. Good luck!

    The person that does it now gets 75000 a year. Nice chunk a change if you ask me.

    how rough is the land and how fast can you go. Multiply the MPH x wide of the mower X .7 for overlap.

    I would say 4-6 hours given the information you provided.

    The property is pretty much flat and wide open. As far as how rough it is idk. Its at a factory. Its looks ok, but that can be deceiving.

    I just wonder how long it would take to mow it with two people on mowers and two on trimmers. Its a lot of property, Just trying to get a ball park figure.
