    Just wondering if you guys have any experience cutting a babe ruth baseball field. The field is 315' down the lines and 350' to center. The grass has only been cut about twice this year and the fence lines haven't been trimmed so the the grass is about 2 feet high along the fences. I haven't had the chance to cut such a big property yet so I don't have a very good estimation on how long it will take. I have a 48 inch exmark if that helps. Any thoughts on what to charge or time invovled would be great. thanks

    I cut several High School sports fields including baseball and softball and soccer fields. I hope that 48" is a ZTR. We use 60" ZTR's on the ones I cut. I do them on a yearly contract and they start at $7K a year and goes up.

    I cut 3 myself with 3 72 inch Z Deere's!! It would take me about 5 min.
    But with 1 48 in I would say 30- 45 minutes.
    This is where it is hard for smaller mowers 48 and below to
    compete with the larger machines In wide open areas , Where I see a 50 dollar job
    you might see a75-100 dollar job. What the customer see's is
    the bottom line. Good luck
