    Hi,

    I'm going to bid on new city contracts and I would like to know how much acres per hour could I do with a jd 997 or a kubota zd331 with 72" on normal mowing condition, not soccert field but not cimetery.

    Thanks!

    That question is not specific enough to give you an answer.

    If you want a ballpark figure, take the width and multiply it by feet/hour ground speed then divide that number by 43,000 to get acres per hour, then multiply that number by maybe .65-.75 due to having to slow down/turn etc... This would get you in the ballpark.

    Also most manufacturers have productivity charts on their websites, but keep in mind that some of them can be optimistic.
