holeeee hell... I just did the math on this.

1 acre = 43560 sqft, = or a square 209 ft x 209 ft. figuring 24" mower, that's 209 / 2.0 ft = 104 passes. 104 passes at 209 ft per pass = 21780 ft, or 4 1/8 miles!!!

But really, it's 2sqft mowed per ft walked, so 43560/2 = 21780 linear ft.

10 acres = 217,800 linear feet, or 41.25 miles.

Mowing 10 acres on a 36" riding mower is like driving 27 1/2 miles!!

Crazy.



I suspect that didnt actually happen lol.
