    I sent the crew home at noon today. Since it's 1000 degrees outside and the grass is toast, I thought I'd give the Dixies a break. I thought the crew and I deserved a break too.

    Well, since I'm small but running solo, I'm gonna say what I can do in a short while. I arrive at my first job at 6:00 AM and start mowing my 1 3/4 acre job (I'm gonna say that's what the acrerage is, not totally sure). I can trim and mow it in 3 hours. Not bad for a guy without a Dixie ;). Anyway, by the time my ride shows up to get to the next job, it's about 3 1/2 hours. I grease and clean the mower completely before I leave. Then, I have to drive about 20 or so minutes to the next job. Takes 45 mins. to mow the next one, then 20 mins or so to mow the last one. Only 3 jobs, but I don't have the fastest mower out there and I have hills and trees to deal with at the large prop. There are trees EVERYWHERE. Tons of trimming there. And the hills are a problem. Anyway, I can be done by 11:00. I have no employees and I don't have a mower that will do 10 MPH while mower, well, I'm sure the Groundsmaster could mow at 8 or so, but it's so rough it would beat me to death. Anyway, congrats on the guys that can mow fairly quick. I watched some guys while I was on vacation mow 4 average sized lawns in 45-60 mins with 2 guys trimming and one guy mowing with a Scag Turf Runner (Walker copy). I'm sure it could have been faster 'cuz the guys trimming were SO slow. Go figure, must have been new guys. :D

    1000 degrees? Be happy you aren't on the Gulf Coast where you get 1000% humidity.
