    How long would it take to mow 10,000 sf foot of grass using a 36wb, and gas trimmer, Minimal obsticles, mulching? I would think 1/2 hour if you are a one man crew. Also what about a 5000 sqft using same mower, 1 man crew and bagging. I would think the same. Is the cutting it close or spending too much time at each. This will be kentuck blue grass/fescue yards.

    that sounds like a good time for both I feel. The 5,000 though you should be able to knock out in about 20 mins, even if you are bagging it. Make sure to charge extra for bagging though
