# Acres Per Hour Calculator

How to measure the efficiency of your mower in terms of acres covered per hour? Just enter a few simple values like **Width of Mower** and **Mower Speed **into the The **Acres Per Hour Calculator**, you can quickly determine how many acres you can mow in an hour.

### What is Acres Per Hour?

**Acres Per Hour (APH)** is a measure of how many acres you can cover in an hour with your mower. This is particularly useful for farmers, landscapers, and anyone who needs to estimate their mowing efficiency.

### How to Use the Calculator

To use the Acres Per Hour Calculator, follow these steps:

**Enter the Width of Mower (inches)**: For example, input`60`

in the**Width of Mower**field.**Enter the Mower Speed (MPH)**: For instance, input`5`

in the**Mower Speed**field.**Enter the Acres Per Hour of Cutting**: If you know this value, input it here. Otherwise, leave it blank to calculate.

The calculator will then compute the missing value based on the provided inputs.

### Formula

The formula used to calculate Acres Per Hour is:

$\text{APH}=\left(\frac{\text{MW}}{12}\right)\times \left(\frac{\text{MS}\times 5280}{43560}\right)\times 0.90$

**Variables**

Variable | Description |
---|---|

MW | Width of Mower (inches) |

MS | Mower Speed (MPH) |

APH | Acres Per Hour of Cutting |

## How To Calculate Acres Per Hour ?

#### Example 1

**Width of Mower**: 72 inches**Mower Speed**: 6 MPH

To calculate the **Acres Per Hour of Cutting**:

Convert the width from inches to feet:

$\frac{72}{12}\mathrm{}$ feet

Calculate the distance covered per hour:

$6\times 5280=31680$feet

Convert the distance to acres:

$\frac{31680}{43560}\approx 0.727$ acres

Apply the efficiency factor:

$0.727\times 0.90\approx 0.65$acres

So, the acres per hour of cutting is approximately **0.654 acres**.

#### Example 2

**Width of Mower**: 48 inches**Mower Speed**: 4 MPH

To calculate the **Acres Per Hour of Cutting**:

Convert the width from inches to feet:

$\frac{48}{12}=4$ feet

Calculate the distance covered per hour:

$4\times 5280=21120$ feet

Convert the distance to acres:

$\frac{21120}{43560}\approx 0.485$ acres

Apply the efficiency factor:

$0.485\times 0.90\approx 0.436$acres

So, the acres per hour of cutting is approximately **0.436 acres**.
