    My dad has a contract for a strip mall. This is his first year. He has a JD 240, 8' snow bucket. So just curious...how fast are you guys? how many square feet can you clear an hour?

    1.8 acres (78,408 sf) is the rule of thumb I go by for a commercial lot for your machine.

    You think it can do 1.8 APH with just a snow bucket?? I would think closer to 1-1.2 but thats my best guess. That is for a 2 speed, would be slower if it is a single speed.

    Also depends on how much snow. 3", 6", 12" 24", etc.
