    Just saying hi. I have two properties I run, but they are 27 acres and 37 acres. I mainly run finisher mower and bushhog, but I just acquire a Hustler Shortcut 1500 for free as my new toy and to help with my two properties. I mainly started fixing small engines for fun because they were free. I eventually got a free riding mower out of it, which turned to someone asking if I could help on a horse farm doing lawn care. I'm new and love hearing about people's experiences. Thanks.

    Hi from SC.

    What size mower? How many hrs do they each take? Do you do any weed-eating or just mow?

    BTW, that's a funny looking mower

    Kubota 3300 series with Land pride 72" Finisher and bush hog, gravely zero, cub LT1050. The 27 Acres takes 6-8 hrs weed eating 3 hours on a different week along with mowing around the house adds another 2-3. The 37 acres is mainly weed eating 5-6 hrs a week and mowing the other 2 with bush hog.

    Awesome I'm actually in Chesapeake area. I've been to Yorktown to pick up a mower not too long ago.

    Wow! That's a big difference than my jobs. Most are 1 hr total! I did just pick up a 2-acre job with a lot of weed-eating. Est. 4 hrs. Can't imagine weed-eating for 5 hrs!

    I love it though, each property gets a whole day of my attention and I can work at my pace.
