    I would like to hear from you guys on how many lawns a solo operator can handle mowing. All of the lawns that I am targeting and currently mow are 1/4 acre or less (most of the neighborhoods are have very, very small lots). I will be using a 36" hydro and my radius is less than 10 miles. How much can one guy handle with those kind of numbers??

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Most of my lawns are small. It depends on the gate size and which mower I use. I usually can mow between 10 and 15 a day by myself. Sometimes more if I need to catch up.
