Took this shot last Friday morning, yard was a swamp, but my Toro made short work of the tall grass. Other than being swampy mush this yard is one of my favorites because it just turns out nice.

As you can see we get em cleaned up and looking nice. A typical property we take care of in my area.

Looks good... nice and clean...

I guess that SFS deck cuts florida grass good.

Is that the 52" or the 44"?

Yeah 44" SFS and it was around 6 inches in most areas.

Looks good. How does the Toro do with grass clumping up under the deck? Our Deeres with stamped decks really piled up underneath and were a PITA to keep clean on wet grass. My Ferris isn't so bad, because it's really deep and square underneath.

I'm considering a WB that's got a similar design is the reason I'm asking.

Looks very nice. What did you do with the clippings? Rake them and bag them up or was it all mulched?

Nice job. You completely avoided getting the grass stains on the sidewalk, which is something that we still need to work on, now and again. Or did you have to spend any extra time cleaning paved areas? Anyways, looks great.

Good clean cut, Are you mowing St. Augustine Grass?

Several years ago I had two Walk-behind's with the SFS deck, in fast growth periods triple cuts were required. The turbo-force is clearly a superior cutter deck for the grass I mow.

Looks good! Is that a commercial deck?

I am so jealous...... Because you have "wet" grass. I've heard of wet grass, but I'm not sure if I remember what that actually is.:cry:

(Nice job though):drinkup:

I have heard someone talk about rain sometime ago,is that the stuff that sometimes falls from the sky> We havent had a decent rain in over 8 weeks where i live and the cutting has gone down to cutting weeds every 3 weeks or so . I would love to cut wet grass again Looks good man keep on cutting

It is a commercial mower, I cut mostly St. Augustine and some Bermuda. I never get clumps unless its down poring or a really weedy yard. I do mulch and that keeps a mess to a minimal. Sometimes in droughts I have to dbl cut cuz the stressed grass bends over and i cant get enough vacuum. But thats on the few houses down here with out irrigation systems.
