    Im starting this thread to see how large of lawns you guys are mowing. My biggest lawn is a 12 acre mansion. It takes me and another guy 3 hours to mow, trim, edge, and blow on a John Deere 727 with a 54" and a John Deere 1435 with a 72" and a John Deere G15 walk behind.

    Currently my largest is 3 ferted and irrigated. A few years a go I did a 6 acre, but she foreclosed and it is 5 feet tall. How long is the longest run.

    according to the size of his mowers, he can mow close to 6 acres an hour between the two of them. That leaves an hour for trimming and blowing. My guess would be $350 also.

    According to Scag's website, their 61" deck can mow 23.7 acres in 8 hours. Or 2.9 acres per hour.

    I mowed 2.5 acres today at one of my stops. The property has 14 trees and shrubs to mow around 4 are huge hollies and one rubber tree that spans 40ft across! Then a big hill in the back that accounts for over an acre that is all sloped. I had it finished in a hour and 20 minutes! No trimming this week. I trim every other week at that stop. :D

    a little over an acre with 10 trees, 2 rock walls, and a fence that needs trimming on both sides and underneath. takes 35-40 minutes to mow 10-15 min to trim and 3 mins to blow
