So the neighbor lady comes over today and says she has a friend who isn’t happy with her lawn guy and she has about 10 acres. So the lady tells her that I just moved in across the street and I’ve mowed and done some work for the neighbors and they look better than they’ve ever looked etc (always nice to get that reinforcement right?). So she asked for my number and all that. I don’t mow acreage and in fact until this season the only mowers I’ve run were a Honda commercial 21” and an Exmark 30”. This season I finally took a step toward modern mowing and bought a 48” hydro walk behind. Like a whole new world. I’ve picked some big (to me at least) lawns but nothing over and acre. I’m in a small old steel town which is technically a city. But I’m doing city lots built in the 30’s and 40’s outward from the mill, along with some newer developments. But in 5 minutes I can be getting into farm country. With the prospect of taking over some new accounts next season (I’m assuming the same type of mowing I’m doing now) I’d toyed with the idea of getting a stand on mower to increase my productivity on some of the bigger lawns and make room for some new ones. I don’t really want to invest in a rider. I hate sitting because I have back problems that get worse if I’m in the car or on a mower for more than 45 min. Question is, is a stand on suited for mowing ten acres at a time? Doesn’t seem like it but I’ve never mowed acreage nor used a stander. Also, what are folks paying per acre, assuming it’s clear, open, relatively flat space?
