    Does anybody now how many acres an hour a 25/60 hustler z is suppose to be able to mow. Assuming there are very few obstacles and it is wide open mowing.

    Depends on how efficient you are in trimming and overlapping, also on how fast your going.
    It is going to vary, but with 75-80 % efficiency, mowing at say 8 or 9 mph your going to be somewhere around 4 to 5 acres per hour.
    Now realize the Hustler Z has a top speed of 11 mph, so in perfect conditions with the best efficiency you could get more per hour done.
