    without stopping or shutting off the mower.

    How many consecutive hours have you mowed on a Z?

    I just spent today mowing a field for 4 hrs straight.

    I have no idea how many total acres I mowed but his total prop is 23.

    I sure got a lot of acreage covered in those 4 hrs using my 05 Toro Z Master.

    Best of all no trimming at all because they use gallons of roundup.

    I had a blast and made decent $$ too. Wide area mowing is fun.

    Not with a Z, but with a 50" Simplicity rider my first couple years mowing 4 softball fields. I was 13 or 14 at the time and would sometimes get the entire place done in one day, so that was about 6 hours of mowing the fields and surrounds to the complex. On a 60" Z that is about 2.5-2.75 hours of mowing.

    Just over 4 hours, never getting off the whole time. Started mowing one night at 9:00PM, and finished a little after 1:00AM. It was at a large municipal sewage treatment facility, and I mowed at night to avoid the 100 degree daytime temps. My knees and hips were so stiff I could hardly walk for a few minutes after I finished.

    The longest I have gone is a couple hours but I mowed about 70 acres! I must admit however it took me several years to work out all the bugs on mounting an 8 foot mulching deck under my Camaro Z(28).:p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p
