    Hell I change mine every 4 hours in spring and every 8 or every day. Just much better for everything

    Why not get a carport? One of those cheapey canvas ones would be fine if you don't have to worry about snow. Forget rain.....even the sun can do damage and age a machine prematurely.

    How many accounts do you mow in a day? I have a total of 30 accounts and I sharpen once a month unless I notice extensive tearing to the grass blades.

    Yes I sharpen mine daily
    The key on cutting grass at a high speed is sharp blades
    I only have 57 accounts 75% of them are 5 acres and larger 25% are 3 acres and smaller

    Like Friday I only mowed 2 lawns but that was total of 97 acres

    With 3 man crew I can do a mix of different size lawn most of the time 15-18
    Since the bad drought I lost my third man so now back to 2 man crew

    I try get atleast $1200 per 10hr day if I hit my mark I'll stop that day
