    I've made it minutes past 9 a few times in the middle of the summer, when days are the longest.... Even then, not a whole lot of daylight at 9pm!

    I’ve mowed my own yard at 9:30. I’ve never worked a customers yard past dark.

    I've mowed a cemetery until almost 10:00. If not for moon light I would have been scared.

    Moon light is overrated.

    I've got a light kit on one of the mowers, one of my clients that lives on 4 acres and has no neighbors near was on vacation so I started at 330am... not exactly late, more like early

    For pay? Not past 9 when comditions permit, and even that is very rare. When I was a kid, around 11PM. It took 8 hours to mow our property with the old Wheel Horse, so those headlights got used a lot in the summer.

    I mow a couple of 8 acre churches … Have lights on a Ferris 3200 and mow them half the time at night... sometimes until 1 am. Cooler also in the summer.
