This tool helps you calculate how many acres you can mow per hour.

## How to Use the Mowing Acres Per Hour Calculator

This calculator helps estimate the number of acres you can mow per hour. Follow these steps:

- Enter the width of your mower in feet.
- Enter the speed at which you mow in miles per hour.
- Enter the efficiency percentage of your mowing (usually affected by obstacles, turns, etc.).
- Click on “Calculate” to see the result.

## How It Calculates the Results

The calculator works as follows:

**Width of Mower:**Converts the width from feet to miles (since there are 5280 feet in a mile).**Speed of Mower:**Utilizes the input speed in miles per hour directly.**Efficiency Percentage:**Adjusts for real-world conditions where not every pass is 100% efficient due to turns, obstacles, etc.- The formula used is:
`(Mower Width in Miles) x (Speed in MPH) x (Efficiency/100) x 640`

. This converts the total area covered per hour into acres since there are 640 acres in a square mile.

## Limitations

Be aware of these limitations:

- The calculator assumes flat and consistent terrain.
- It does not account for variations in mower performance.
- Weather conditions are not considered.
