    Just seeing how I stack up against the competition. My best day ever was a little over $8,000. Thats mowing roughly 55-60 acres of apartment complex's and commercial property in 1 day. Thats with 8 guys working 8 am til 9 pm. How much have you made in 1 day?

    Congratulations ??? I don't understand how with the mowers you have listed, but if you say you could than I won't argue. We have done $2100 in a day with 4 guys, 2 60" DC's and a 72" DC and that was hustling.

    Believe me we were hustling!!!! One account alone is $2,000 per time!! We mowed 11 accounts that day. Is there something wrong with my equipment lbilawncare? We always have 6 guys running mowers for a total of at least 24 ft. of mowers going at once. Thats alot of ground being covered. I wish I could make $8,000 a day every week but it doesnt happen that much, maybe twice a month.

    rotflmao!

    too much:D

    no kidding, my brother ( a truck driver) was dropping a load of mulch off at a warehouse outside of baltimore, he said the mowing company had about 100 big commercial walk behinds in it.

    Mr. Leprechaun -No, there is nothing wrong with your equipment nor did I intend to imply that there was . I would use a bigger deck than a 54 if I had 50-60 acres in a day, but if it works for you than great. And no I am not picking an arguement, just calling it how I see it.

    lbilawncare, I understand!! I have used bigger decks in the past but alot of my accounts have hills and are very uneven terrain. I've found that the 54 inch deck works much better for the kind off accounts I have. I do have 2 Wright Stander's thats are 60 inch decks that I use a ton on the wide open and semi-smooth terrain. Anyways the ZTR'S I have can cut the grass goin 9 mph. We run wide open on some of the accounts where we can!!!!!!
    9 mph= good money and more mowing!!!!!!!
