    What is the average time it takes to plow an acre using an 8' or 9' plow on a pick-up truck, V-plow or straight, for 3' to 4 inches? Appreciate your help!

    Thanks for responding. That is what I figured it would take!

    The consensus seems to be an hour per acre is average. Of course there are many factors such as the equipment, truck, operator skill, obstacles, etc. A crowded lot with obstacles, people coming and going, a new operator, etc could take 3+ hours per acre, whereas a wide open area could take a skilled operator less than 30 mins/acre.
