    Has any one figured out what it actually cost them to run a ZTR for one hour? or a trimmer or what it actually costs to drive your truck to a property drop the gate and mow? I'm looking for some help with some calculations I have an idea but I would like to see if you or anyone had a different way of figuring out your cost.
