    the biggest thing im looking for right now is just a program that will help you estimating grass mowing time.

    I think you're only going to be able to estimate mowing time through experience. Just too many variables...

    Grass height?
    Grass type?
    Is it wet or dry?
    Obstacles - how many?
    Level terrain, or hilly?
    Deck size?
    Horsepower?
    How much ground speed can you get while still keeping high cut quality?
    Blade type?
    Mulching or discharging/bagging?

    I agree, I have a 1 acre property that takes me 3 hours and I have a 4 hour property that takes just under 3 hours. I have a breakdown somewhere with actual property sizes & times. When I come across it I will post it for you.
