    Anyone know how many acres in an hour you could mow with a 48 inch Walk behind with a 17 hp kawasaki belt drive?? Lets just say it's flat with no obstacles. Thanks Again

    Go to Exmark's website and they have a way cool chart that will tell you with the variables.

    Depends on how fast your walk-behind goes. The 2 most popular speeds seem to be 5.2 and 6.0. At 5.2 you can cut 2.08 aph@80%e and at at 6.0 you can cut 2.33 aph@80%e.

    aph@80%e = acres per hour at 80 percent efficiency.
