    Depends on the ground speed and cutting conditions.
    Overlap will also come into play.
    It will vary from 4 to 6 acres per hour depending on ground speed.
    Here is a simple formula that many mfg's use.
    MPH multiplied by the width of cut divided by .99
    That formula will give you a 100% efficiency, of course you would have to be on perfectly flat ground and the grass be perfect height and dry and you must not have any overlap to get this 100% efficiency.
