George, I was trying to figure out how many square feet per minute I can mow(for estimating smaller lawns), I know how many acres per hour I just need to convert to feet and for the life of me could not remember the number. Thanks again. I'll be bidding smart tommorrow Thanks to you guys!

I just took the PAT test here in Wisconsin. The sq. ft. per acre info was about the only thing worth learning in the whole training manual. It seemed to me the whole booklet was a big commercial for not using pesticides.

Well I guess its all in how you look at the question. A builders acre is 40,000 square feet, while a (regular) acre is 43,650. I guess you are probably more interested in the latter.
