How many trips would I save using the John Deere 1445?
It is half a city block which measures 330′ x 165′. My riding mower deck is 48″.
165′ x 12″ = 1,980″
1,980″ / 48″ = 41.25
It takes just over 41 mower decks to cut lawn. Depending on the student, a trip will include either a full circuit or loop which will take two 48″ cuts.
So, 41.25 / 2 = 20.6
So it takes 20 full trips and a half of another to cut the lawn with the riding mower.
The John Deere 1445 cuts a mighty 120″
1,980″ / 120″ = 16.5
It would take 17 mower decks to cut the lawn.
So, 17/ 2 = 8.5 trips
Find the difference in the riding mower and the push mower.
20.5 – 8.5 = 12 trips less, you can make the movie later tonight!
(What percent decrease is this from the riding mower? What percent decrease compared to the push mower?)
