Default push or ride?

moving to a new house in a few weeks. about a half acre of grass. figured i'd pick up a self-propelled push mower to start with... but i'm wondering how long it is gonna take me. any guesses? probably 21 or 22 inch cut...

For a couple hundred more bucks, the el cheapo ones at Lowes. etc, will do the job for about 5 years.

Watch out buying self propelled as they will slow you down. Allot of the new self propelled run very slow and you will find that you could use a bush mower much quicker.

Get on Craig's list and barter whatever it is you do for some grass whacking. Mowing sucks, really really sucks. I kicked that piece of shizat to the curb three years ago and never looked back.

If you have the entire 1/2 acre to cut less the square footage of the house and driveway then weed eat and trim you are looking in the neighborhood of at least 3 hours.
