    alright everyone heres the scenario. this property has about 3.5 acres of grass to be mowed, all of it is to be bagged ( dont give me crap about this, its the standard practice around here and it looks like crap not bagged) I have a 42" exmark and i can do about 18000 sqft an hr. the site has alot of cedar trees and a few large maple trees. how long does this normally take you? how much do you charge

    What kind of bagger do you have I could cut it in 1.25 hrs with my 60' but to bag it would be 2-2.5 hrs

    with a 60 inch I would say 2 + hours. It shounds like you have a really thick stand of grass if it looks bad unless bagged and that slows down mowing time more than emptying the bagger.

    I have a 3.5 acre yard that I do for $100/cut. 2 of us cut with a 60" Toro and 48" hydro. Depending on the time of year, I usually double cut the main areas of the lawn and single the rest...takes about 50 min of solid cutting, 1 hour with trimming. With your 42", i'd pack a lunch if the grass is thick and I hope you have a stake body if you have to haul that much grass
