    Due to lots of rain all week and more forecast for tomorrow and today was the only dry day, I set a new record today for lawns mowed. All the same neighborhood, lots are typically 100x200 standard residential although a lot of them have smaller wooded back yards. 39 yards done, with a walkbehind, and no sulky. Exmark 48" TTHP which I had put in a 19HP engine to start the year really helped. Mulched too, no side discharge for me. I did have a guy on the trimmer/blower. 12 1/2 hours.

    Who can top that?

    Forgot to mention that I'm 50 years old. In good shape, have done Ironman distance triathlons in the distant past, still run some but not so much right now.

    It also helps having clusters of 3, 4, or 5 houses together without moving the trailer.

    Did 34 last friday. I'm only 19 but I had my helper with me who's 62 (my dad). We went back and forth on the equipment though. All were in 3 neighborhoods. Each stop has a min of 3 houses at it. One even has 6.

    I couldn't imagine doing 39, I about killed myself doing 34...

    I don't think I could finish 20 lawns if I waited for the right day and lined them all up and everything.
    Matter of fact I'm not sure if I can do 10, it's just not the way I work.

    Yup, the 1/4 ton model.
