    I have a new Case IH DX 45 with a 8' compact snow box.. How many acres a hour will it do of open parking lot??

    It is a 45 horse HST tractor that weighs around 4500 pounds with the loader.. Top speed is about 14 MPH..

    my buddy stuck a NH about that size on a walmart(about 5 acres) and he was laughing stock.... i don't mean this in a bad way, just saying that a 45 hp lawn mower is not cut out for multiple acre sized lots....
