    young enough to be able to operate with two 21" mowers.

    There was a guy on here years ago that used to mow with two 21 inch mowers at the same time with one hand on each. He put a video up of himself in action. Personally I can't stand using 21 inch mowers and don't even load mine anymore, but my market is different than yours...most of my lawns are in the 1/4 to 2 acre size range.

    Darryl, the lots houses sit on are like .965 or 1 acre. The biggest mower used is a 36. But, some guys squeeze a 48 stander in the yards.

    Wow...can't imagine mowing lawns that size with a 21 or even a 36 and a 48 on lawns that size isn't a squeeze in my opinion. I have a lawn that's about 1,000 square feet that I mow with my 48. I run a 48 inch walk behind and a 52 inch rider. To each his/her own I guess.

    Wait...you're mowing 1 acre lawns with a 21 inch mower for $25?

    but, wait until you add a house to the lot... then, there is not much grass.

    One acre is 43560 square feet, the average house is 3000 square feet so now you are down to 40560 square feet, lets say the house has a pool, and its 24' round, so figure close to 500 square feet, down to 40060 square feet, give extra for a driveway maybe 30*15 so take out another 450 feet, so the average 1 acre lot has 39610 square feet of yard to maintain so with all of that, (and I was very generous) there is 0.909320477503907 acres of property, WAY to much to charge $25 for. I get $25 for a 1/4 acre lot that takes me 15 minutes. I mow with a 38" walk behind mower and it is quite small for an acre. 48 and + would be much better

    Actually a "once acre" lot is usually 40,000 square feet, a half acre 20k and 1/4 acre 10K. A 3,000 square foot house is a pretty big house and since they're often more than one story would take up less space. But minor differences aside, I agree that $25 is really cheap for a yard that size.
