I am using a push mower and I was wondering how long I should expect to be able to work each day? How long do you work with a Push mower?
I know you're just getting started but I would recommend you consider getting a used 36" WB in decent shape. They are not much more money than a new 21" commercial mower. Way more productive so you can do more in a days time.

I have no frame of reference because I don't use a 21" mower all day. In actuality, they are the most unused pieces of equipment on my trailer.

I will take a wild guess at it though. I'm 39 years old and literally in the best shape of my life. Personally, I would think I could work a solid 8-9 hours with a 21" if I had to.

I asked after how long YOU work each day with a push mower
okay, i'll answer your question.
i work 1 hour a week with a push mower, for a couple islands that i do.

the point is.....
no1 is going to be able to answer that question for you and make it relevant to your situation. how big are the lawns? are you in shape or fat? any heart problems? allergic to anything? can you be in the sun all day? are you a teen? in your 20s? 30s?

do you live with your parents? or do you have a family to support? cause 'motivation' will help you cut more lawns a day as well.
