Hey I'm an underpaid full-time journalist trying to make some cash on the side. I have two questions for the pros regarding starting my own part-time lawn care operation. 1. how long does it take to mow a 2-acre lawn with a 48" walk behind mower (+ weedwhacing and blowing)? how long for the same size lawn with a 21"? 2. would you recommend to a newbie part-timer dropping the dough on a $1000 48" (cause it will save me time and a lot of effort presumably), or should i get a quality $500-$600 21" mower, since i'll only have time for a very limited # of lawns per week? i figure with the 48" i can easily do at least 1 lawn per day, maybe 5 on the weekends. please let me know if i'm just ignorant of the business. any help greatly appreciated.
