    Do you have a sulky? If so, you could do it, but it would take several hours.

    Yes, I only use 52" walk behind, standing, or sitting. I would not use a 48" on any yard of any size.

    Scag advertisement says 23 acres a day so go for it! That likely is 52" running 12mph but it sure looks like 7 acres could be done in a half day.

    You should mow that in 3-4 hours max. No big deal if you are solo. Go for it. That scag should roll right through those jobs.

    With tiger cub ZTR, you should be able to do it within 4.5 hours max.

    I would use the scag if anything. 7 acres a week is what a scag is built for. just give the scag a little break during the rest of the week. I would not use the cub not buit for that kind of acrerage. But on that sit down sulkey make sure you dont :sleeping: Hope I helped, Randy's Lawn Care :waving:
