    All the statistics are going to be higher than the real world will allow-the manufacturers want to sell mowers. Anything over 4.5 miles per hour and you're going to tear the grass instead of cut it. All these mowers that run 10-15 miles per hour are nothing more than marketing schemes. A job(good job) always takes longer than expected.

    I wouldn't bet on any formula. Too many variables.
