    Yesterday a friend and I set a new records for yards done in one day (well for me atleast).

    27 yards (mow,trim,edge,blow).
    1 one hour cleanup
    1 commercial property (takes us about 40 mins)
    and one thirty minute lunch break.

    Hardest day I think I've ever worked in my life. Went to bed about 8:30pm, and slept till 9am this morning:) ALl this rain has killed us, so we just decided to knock out a bunch yesterday, off to finish the rest off right now.

    We have done 127 in one day plus 3 retention ponds. 91 one of them are in one park and the others are in another park down the road. There are three of us and we do these every Thursday. We mow, trim, edge, do the bushes, spray, and blow all of our accounts. We do about 80-90 the other days of the week.

    Not that its a contest or anything, but I have often worked wide open from 6:00 AM until 1:00 AM (yes, 19 hours) and then started again at 6:00 AM the next day.

    How do I work in the dark you must wonder....on those marathon days it has been mow, etc until dark and then fix/fuel/maintain equipment into the wee hours.


    PS Watch out don't let any TRAINS sneak up on you:confused:

    i think its tough to compare on this site since everybody is from different areas and the size of lawns greatly varies. we have two maintenance crews and our record for one crew is 29 houses, which is with two 60 in. riders and a 52 in. walkbehind. most of our places are pretty large.

    Our lawns range from 1/8 acre to 1/2 acre. If your bedroom is that big you the man Rodfather.

    Every yard is different. If you want to try to impress people get another company that will do the exact same yards then post the results.
    But, if you make yourself feel better by stating records that mean absolutely nothing to the rest of us, go for it.
    By the way, I have 1 account that takes us 2.5 days to complete and I get $1150.00 to do it. Is that a record? Who the heck knows. I don't care and no one else does either.
