    Anybody mow any yards that are not built on yet and are just forsale. A guy i know has 2 lots that he has in a subdivision forsale and wants them mowed. He currently pays 75 dollars each time it is brush hogged. Said he would let me have them, but i guess the question is how long could i go without mowing them. He said the guy brush hogs them now just 5 times a year. Wasnt sure if i could let it go a month and still mow it or if i would ruin my equipemnt since all i have is a 60" ZTR. Anyways i have rambeled and if anyone has an idea of what i am talking about i would appreciate it.

    I personally wouldn't let it go more than 1 month at the most. Especially in the spring

    During heavy growth 3 weeks is the longest I would wait, otherwise once a month should be fine.
