I have a 44" Toro WB Hydro W/Sulky. I think the top speed is around 7 MPH. How do I calculate that time? Assuming 0 trees

Here you go.

100% efficiency... MPH x width of cut divided by 99=acres per hour

to figure 80% efficiency to give time for turn arounds and not running full speed all the time it is....MPH x width of cut divided by 124=acres per hour
